An advertisement about a transgender mother is touching a million hearts. It is a beautiful story of Gauri Sawant and her adopted daughter who are taking baby steps to change mindsets and are fighting for the LGBT rights.
Sawant, an LGBT rights activist, speaks to India Today about her incredible journey to being a transgender mother and how the transgenders have been recognised as a third gender.
When the child – Gayatri’s parents were planning to sell her off, Sawant stepped in and decided to adopt her. “Mother is beyond gender. Mother could be a transgender, a woman, a gay or even a lesbian. One cannot just label mothers,” she said.
