Public amenities for the LGBT community - It’s a good gesture, but…
Do you feel that public amenities & facilities for LGBT are haphazard? Should they not be properly planned?
Nowadays authorities and common people are becoming aware of the needs and rights of LGBT community. It is a positive trend. Recently, in Nagpur, the administration has decided to construct two public toilets for members of the transgender community. The District Collector Mr. Sachin Kurve has announced that these two toilets will be constructed at Pachpaoli and Sitabuldi localities of the city.
Although this a positive trend, I feel that instead of such haphazard and ad-hoc measures, a proper survey must be conducted to understand the needs of the LGBT community in India. We must know the population, how the community is scattered, their financial conditions, their needs and how can they contribute to the society,
So, I think that welfare activities for the LGBT community must be initiated in a planned and systematic manner based on the community's needs and necessities.
