Transgender magazine big hit at Fair in Kolkata

MERALittle-MagThe ‘Abamanab” stall, put up by the transgender community to showcase their literary creativity, is a big hit at the Little Magazine Fair being held on the Rabindra Sadan premises in Kolkata.

Curious visitors and admirers chatted with the stall staff, and bought present and past editions of ‘Abamanab’, edited by the principal of Krishnagar College. The magazine that is gradually emerging as the voice of the third gender in the city is clearly a hit.

One member of the transgender community said the Supreme Court’s verdict that recognises transgenders as the third gender has marked a definite change in the magazine’s content that highlights transgender issues through stories and poems.
