Lesbians, gays and bisexuals are not third gender : Supreme Court

Lesbians, gays and bisexuals are not third gender : Supreme Court
01 July 2016 Current Affairs: The Supreme Court (SC) of India has announced that its 2014 verdict did not include lesbians, gays and bisexual persons under the category of transgenders on 30 June 2016.

A bench comprising Justices A.K. Sikri and N.V. Ramana refused to modify the 2014 ruling on transgender rights. The apex court also clarified that its 2014 judgment clearly mentioned that lesbians, gays and bisexuals were not transgender.

On 15 April 2014, Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and A.K. Sikri granted legal recognition to transgenders or eunuchs as third gender.

The SC directed the Union Government and State Governments to treat them as socially and educationally backward classes.

The top court asked the governments to provide them quotas in admission to educational institutions and public appointments.

The court also stated that the third gender people will be considered as Other Backward Class (OBC).

The bench had specially clarified that its verdict pertains only to ‘hijras, eunuchs, Kothis, Aravanis, Jogappas, Shiv-Shakthis’ and not other sections of society like gay, lesbian and bisexuals.
