A solo musical programme ‘Jannat Gaise’ by third gender (hijra) artist Jannat was held in the city’s Green Road area on Friday evening, reports UNB

The programme was organised under the project of ‘development of the standard of lifestyle and good behaviour’ in association with the social welfare department and ‘Rethink’, a platform works for the hijra community, a neglected portion of the society.

As part of the project, third gender artist Jannat was trained for six months on a different genre of music for Jannat’s keen interest in music.

Jannat said, “I feel honoured that I can sing in front of people without any hesitation and people have started accepting us.”

Another third gender Opshora Prokash said that the platform helped them explore their talent which was hidden.

“Please do not neglect us. We want to walk, sing and live together with all others.

Do not treat us as a joker or a dangerous one. Accept us as we are the part of the same society,” she added.

The organisation is regularly holding many cultural sessions in the city with the participation and performance of transgender people (hijra).
