A short session was also conducted on LGBTI where participants were seen very enthusiastic the facilitators of the training Rukshana imparted a comprehensive knowledge about the wide-range of issues about LGBTI.
Rukshana said “I went to the training as a representative of FSGMN. During the training, I never said I was a transgender although few people there know about me. But, I actively explained about LGBTI during its session. I don’t know if other participants have known that I am a transgender or not. Although I am open in the society, this time I did not feel necessary coming out. But explaining about LGBTI and clearing people’s confusion was exciting.” Moreover our discussions and interactions were LGBTI-inclusive.
