She was born in Malti Bai Hospital on 13th Dec 1978 in Thane. She is the first transgender person to represent Asia Pacific in the UN in 2008. At the assembly, she spoke of the plight of sexual minorities. “People should be more human-like. They should respect us as humans and consider our rights as transgenders,” she said.
