My struggle as inter-sex girl
Kusum Bista/Pahichan – My name is Kusum Bista. I am from Imadol Lalitpur, Kathmandu. There are 11 Family members. I was born on Bhaishak 1, 2055. My family members did not inform me that I am an intersex girl. My parents know that many LGBTI friends are doing suicide as they face a lot of problems. At home my parents and other relatives or neighbors call me as Chhori. I studied in Pawn Prakriti English Higher Secondary School from nursery to class 10.
When I was in class 2, I thought that I am different than other friends. In the school, it was very difficult to continue study as there were no friends in class room. Several days, I could not go school due to the friends but told my guardians that I am facing from fever. One day, when my parents told me that I am different from them, I felt alone in the family. I had to sit alone in the bench.
Even my teachers told me that I am different student. After passing School Leaving Certificates (SLC), I visited Blue Diamond Society. I went to Pahichan online and gave an interview. After coming to know that there is an organization working for use, I felt good. I started to interact with friends. Now, I am doing a job as a receptionist of this office.
Now, my parents are happy with me and they have accepted to me. Mainly my grandfather and mother are supporting to him in my home. Family members support me and I support and love them.
