Call Me Heena new
11 November 2017 Hijra is a South Asian term with no exact match in the English language. Hijras are people designated male or intersex at birth who adopt a feminine gender identity.

Traditionally, Hijras held semi sacred status and were hired to sing, dance, and bless newly married couples or newborns at household parties. Earnings were pooled through the guru system, in which Hijras declare allegiance to a guru and submit to group rules, in exchange for financial and social security.

I hope my work will help amplify Hijra voices that are largely quieted, and inspire Hijras to open even more space for themselves within Bangladeshi society.
