Wednesday Discussion II One Year of NALSA II 15 April, 6 pm
You are invited for a discussion at ALF on Wednesday, 15th April, 2015 at 6 pm to mark one year of the Supreme Court’s landmark judgment in the National Legal Service Authority v. Union of India case.
The case grounded the recognition of gender identity within the fundamental rights framework, and provided a crucial charter of rights for the transgender community. While the judgment stood as a watershed moment for LGBTQ rights in the country, it has yet to realize its full potential, with the government stalling on implementation. Wednesday’s discussion will look at the ways in which this judgment has transformed the rights discourse, along with interrogating the way forward in terms of implementation.
