1. About the requirement in brief

Kolkata Rista is a transgender community based organization (CBO) that has, over the last 19 years, worked in four states of India (West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Uttar Pradesh), with various subgroups of the broader LGBTQI+ community, i.e. those of non-normative sexual orientation and gender identity. This includes people who identify as Transgender, Hijra, Kothi, Lesbian, Gay, Queer as also the often ‘hidden’ populations of Dupli, Parikh, Giria etc. who rarely publicly identify. Amongst these groups are included male and transgender sex workers. Kolkata Rista is run by members of these communities themselves and over the years the programmes and strategies of the organization represent an approach sensitive to the ground level experiences of exclusion and marginalization due to gender and sexual divergence from the heteronormative structures of society. Kolkata Rista is sensitive to socio-cultural diversity and celebrates pluralistic nature in the surrounding: ‘All roses are roses but all roses are not red!’
