Transgenders are the 'third gender', rules Supreme Court

“‘Transgenders are also citizens of India. It is the right of every human being to choose their gender. The spirit of the Constitution is to provide equal opportunity to every citizen to grow and attain their potential, irrespective of caste, religion or gender,’ the court said.”
