Trans and Queer People in India Should Demand Better Health Care

With recent celebrations of Pride Month in mind, I argue for the need of queer people to demand a better, more inclusive and more affordable public health care system. We know that queer people have been disproportionately affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of a robust public health care system. Moreover, many queer and transgender people are refused health care at public hospitals, and many cannot afford expensive private hospitals. This privatization limits the access of health care for those who cannot afford private health care. The irony in not asking for an affordable and accessible health care system is the fact that there is a huge intersection between various Indian public health movements and queer-rights movements.
