Mita, a transgender from Karnataka, was admitted in a local hospital in Raichur as she was suffering from appendicitis-related pain. However, she was denied treatment, because she was transgender and allegedly in sex work. Humiliated and horrified, she killed herself by taking sleeping pills.
We asked our grantees to send us their stories - hear their voices from across the world.
With a big thanks to all our grantees who sent in contributions.
Thank you to Sukey Fenwick for post-production and editing.
