Abstract: By according legal recognition to transgenders, hijras and other gender non-normative persons, the countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal have taken a crucial step to empower these persons and enable them to live a life with dignity and without discrimination. Whether India joins this group of nations or not, will depend on a soon to be announced verdict by the Supreme Court.
