` India’s Supreme Court Creates Third Gender on Official Documents So Transgendered are Neither Male or Female ‘

#AceWorldNews – MUMBAI – April 15 – India’s top court on Tuesday issued a verdict creating a third gender category, AP reported.

Transgendered people can now identify themselves that way on official documents after the Supreme Court directed the federal and state governments to include them in all welfare programs for the poor.

Before the judgement, transgendered Indians had to identify themselves as male or female in all official documents.
