Trans Diamond

Transgender movement across the world has reached an accelerated phase where the community is making significant progress in their advocacy for basic rights, identity and acceptance. Despite the increasing acceptance and mainstream media discussion, transgender individuals still face socio-economical and systemic barriers across the world.

To reaffirm commitment to the EU-India Human Rights Dialogue as a key tool to promote shared human rights values and begin the much needed dialogue involving civil societies and nurture an impact-oriented dialogue leading to improve the lives of the transgender community, Make Room India has launched "Miss Trans Diamond" initiative.

‘Miss Trans Diamond’ is 5 day long social beauty pageant gathering some of the world's most socially active and empowering transwomen to uplift, educate, and galvanize the transgender community and general public of the transgender movement and the issues faced by the community.

It is a unique platform for transwomen to build career goals and in turn be empowering role models for the transgender community across the world. Miss Trans Diamond will showcase transwomen that have stood the scrutiny of the society and are role models for others to lead the movement.
