Nellore: Transgender Power In India

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Video about Hijras, a third gender community excluded from the dominant culture in Nellore city, Andhra Pradesh, India. The video illuminates Hijras’ opinions of their underserved and underrepresented status within India’s health and social system. Applying a critical visual anthropology and health disparities framework, “Nellore” features Hijras’ views of disenfranchisement, gender transitionality, and sexual practices.

Through encounters with DUTIES, a Nellore-based nonprofit group working on health awareness projects, Hijras in the digital story make claims for fair treatment by their customers and strengthen global advocacy for transgender rights.
