Coordinator of Transgender Welfare Organization believes that with the support of the people, more such hotels that are run by transgender persons will be opened in the future, thereby improving the livelihoods of many from the community.

A first of its kind Trans Kitchen was opened by the members of the transgender community near Goripalayam area in Madurai. What is grabbing attention is the fact that the staff is involved in all kinds of tasks, including cooking and serving food.

The Swasti organisation has funded the establishment which works towards the upliftment of the individuals and communities belonging to the marginalised section of the society.

The hotel that is completely run by transgenders offer vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes including Idly, Pongal, Biryani, Fish Curry to name a few.

The idea began with a group of 10 persons who have been cooking at home for the past 10 years, catering to small events occasionally. Many who liked the taste of their food requested them to start a hotel.

Situated near the Government Rajaji hospital, the hotel is also providing free meals to patients and children.

Commenting on the initiative, coordinator of Transgender Welfare Organization believes that with the support of the people, more such hotels that are run by transgender persons will be opened in the future, thereby improving the livelihoods of many from the community.
