By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: Several transpersons in the State are struggling to make ends meet since the lockdown began.
Even though provision stores have opened, it has been difficult to gather essentials, say activists.
“It is not a matter of finding provision, it is a matter of money,” says Jaya of the NGO Sahodaran.
The problems are worse for transpersons who are HIV positive, says Grace Banu, a transgender rights activist.
But HIV patients in rural areas are finding it impossible to get their medicines,” she said.
