GUARAV Trust ran a media workshop for journalists, radio jockeys and media representatives to help change attitudes to young GBT and Hijra communities through positive and informed media.
Young people shared their stories and experiences to build understanding and empathy.
The Senior Police Inspector at Sadar Police station, an advocate from Navjivan Society, and a human rights policy analyst from UNDP joined the workshop to reinforce the importance of tackling issues affecting young GBT and Hirja communities.
The event created supportive feedback for young people and a commitment to maintain an association with GUARAV’s work. The sensitisation event was covered in the media and on Inn24 News. The media is committed to sharing positive stories that can change attitudes and behaviours.
