Railways opens a Tea stall run by Transgender community


A ”Trans tea stall” has been set up at the Guwahati Railway station as part of an initiative by the Northeast Frontier Railway. This tea stall is run by the transgender community and is the first of its kind in the country.
Union Minister for Railways Ashwini Vaishnaw posted pictures of this tea stall on Twitter. It shows the newly opened tea stall decorated with garlands and few people from the transgender community standing.

Many people have praised this initiative of the Railways on social media. Industrialist Anand Mahindra re-shared the post and wrote, ”This one small initiative is, in my view, as significant and transformational as your many other progressive projects. Indian Railways carry over 8 billion people. And most important, excludes no one. Bravo Ashwini Vaishnaw.”
