Nitasha Biswas-First Of Her Name And The Queen Of Trans

4 min read

Nitasha Biswas created history on Sunday 28th August at a beauty pageant held in Gurugram by becoming the first Miss Trans Queen of India. She will now represent India at the Miss International Trans Queen in Thailand going to be held in March 2018.

She had, at an early age, realized that she was a female soul trapped inside a male body but she had decided that she would begin her transformation only once she completes her basic education. After completing her schooling from St. Xaviers, Kolkata and graduation in management studies from  National Institute Of Media and Communication, she moved to Delhi to begin the transformation. She had lost her mother at an early age. Her father was against her transformation and wanted her to get married to a Bengali girl.

Despite the unfortunate lack of support from family and friends and an aggravating background of a widespread criticism and ignorant mockery, she bravely continued the Hormone Change Therapy. Her transition took around 4 years and every day she had to fight a battle between a female soul and a male body. Defying all odds she became the first Trans Queen Of India.  



Nitasha knows very well the problems of the transgender community and wants to work for the betterment and acceptance of the transgender community in this disapproving and regressive society. She feels the transgender community not only needs specific constitutional rights but also empowerment after probable harassment and derisive treatment throughout their life. In an interview, she has already expressed her concern regarding the lack of education and family support that pushes the community towards sex trade. She also cited an example of a transgender person who was forced to join a circus because no one gave her a job or took her seriously.

A lot of work is yet to be done for the betterment of the Trans community. Still, giving Nitasha, and others like her, due recognition and applause whilst treating them like any other human being is the least we can do to keep them motivated in their fight for equality. The Pepnewz team keeps its fingers crossed that Nitasha will make India proud globally and continue the fight for her community with the same courage and determination she has shown in the past.
