India’s First Modeling Agency For Hijras Setup By A Hijras

Hijras or transgenders have a tough time getting accepted by society – whether it is India or anywhere else in the world. Hijras like to dress as boys or girls or both, so they like to model. One hijra decided to capitalize on this by setting up India’s first hijra modeling agency, “the Bold” – where all the models are Hijras – they have a handful so far. Now hijras have been featured in certain south Indian magazine covers (and viewers have applauded). In yet another success, one hijra model – “Deepti” who was featured in a magazine cover has become Kerala celebrity.
