I am Sarika. I am here expressing my views on getting an accommodation or any kind of support for a Transgender in Hyderabad.
While most of you would agree that Transitioning itself is an emotional, social and financial turmoil, moving to a new place adds it up more. I have been trying hard to find an accommodation in Hyderabad for a very long time - almost an year. Since i couldnt, i compromised to eclipse my identity and continue the struggle. Unable to concentrate on anything due to social and other stigmas, i am forced to resign from my job currently,
When it comes to accommodation, being a transwoman, i feel it odd to be in a company of guys (who look down on me as someone worthless) and girls feel odd with me. This translates to being single and finding only the company of my soul. Most of you would know what a bachelor guy's place looks like. Unable to bear the environment and people, I have slept on railway station and bus-stand benches for many nights. The struggle still continues.
Few days back i tried to end myself but i just could not. I am not sure why. All i wish for is someone who can really see my soul, accept me as a human being and lend support. I wish to see that day. Hope i get to.
