The Truth About Me: A Hijra Life Story – A. Revathi

The Truth About Me: A Hijra Life Story

An extraordinarily riveting memoir of liberating a claustrophobic soul besieged by stereotypic hindrance and contemptuous societal intolerance. Revathi born as Doraisamy was the youngest son, perpetually signifying that he was a woman blossoming in a man’s physicality. Revathi’s metamorphism and cathartic revelation into her true calling of trangenderism is a touching and spirited journey of an individual whose sect (‘hijras’/eunuch) is marginalized to the duplicitous fringes of the Indian society. A must read for every voice who bellow for individual rights yet adhering to chauvinism denying civil liberties in the name of sexuality, caste and creed.
