IMPHAL, Dec 20 - With an objective to promote the rights entitled to transgender (TG) community in Manipur, an exclusive �Mega Fashion Event� tilted �Sana gi Likphang�, will be staged at Hotel Imphal on December 23 (6 to 8pm) under the aegis of �Sana Ebemma�- an NGO based in Imphal.
�This mega fashion event will be the curtain raiser for a 3-month long campaign to promote the rights of transgender, in which a series of events such as penal discussion, workshop and consultation, pride walk will be organised�, RK Sujata, Secretary of Sana Ebemma said, while speaking to mediapersons in Imphal on Sunday.
Sandra Nandeibam, who is a TG activist and brand ambassador of the NGO informed that the supreme court of India has recognised the TG community as �third gender�. However, society at large failed to acknowledge the facts. He added that the campaign will act as a catalyst in sensitising of the masses.
The December 23 �Sana gi Likphang� will focus on indigenous essence, as the title itself signifies giving a new life to erstwhile indigenous things by erasing the out-dated attitudes, for instance the erstwhile neglect of �Kayma Likpang�.
