Uttar Pradesh: First Transgender toilet built in Varanasi

The first transgender toilet in Uttar Pradesh has been built by the Government in Kamachha area of Varanasi under the Smart City project. It was inaugurated by Mayor Mridula Jaiswal.

“This is the first transgender toilet in Uttar Pradesh. We will build more wherever required,” said Mayor Mridula Jaiswal.

These toilets are only for transgender community and not others. This was a long awaited demand as they had to face a lot of difficulties. They plan on building four more toilets whenever required in the next three to four months.

The transgender community has appreciated the step taken by the local body administration and said that there should be more toilets like this in every city.
