The Indian Supreme Court judgment on transgender rights

“Transform – 2nd International Conference on Transgender Rights and the Law” was the conference organized by the Centre for Law & Policy Research, that took place at the Indian Institute of Human Settlements, Bangalore on the 14th & 15th of April, 2018.

ARC’s Arvind Narrain presented a paper which analysed the Supreme Court judgment on transgender rights, NALSA v. UOI from an intersectional lens, looking at the connections between caste and gender identity and expression in particular.

The paper also examined how the language of the judgment was moulded by the Yogyakarta Principles ( in particular Principle 3 on right to recognition before the law) and how the YP plus 10 can play a role in developing a transgender jurisprudence in India.
