Gender Sensitization Workshops
“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.”
Today, we may not be able to change the unjust scenario in a matter of short time, but we can definitely improve the circumstances in the future by watering the seedling plants with healthy compost and fertilizers. That is why Team DAEF is holding Gender Sensitisation Seminars at various Educational Institutions that nurture our future leads and stakeholders of development.

Social Media Campaigns

#WhyNotMe: Campaign to raise awareness of the absence of transwomen in the Bollywood industry. ‘Why Not Me’ is a question to the mainstream casting directors.
#WeAreYourStrenght: A Campaign for allies to express their Support, Love and Adoration to their LGBTQIA+ friends.
#MTQIAgainstCovid19 / #DAEFAgainstCovid19: a special emergency fund to help the trans community that has been thoroughly affected by the lockdown in the whole country due to #Covid19 outbreak.
Miss Trans Queen India
Miss Trans Queen India is the first-ever Pageant in India that has been curated particularly for Trans Women. Grievously Beauty Pageants in our country are Trans-Exclusive; it does not include trans-women in their selection criteria. This shows the ostracism and prejudices Trans women are still facing in the mainstream industry. Our main motto is INCLUSIVITY, to fight the Stereotypical Beauty Standards and Include Trans Women of every height, complexion, hair, and size.
This platform is an answer and solution to all the Casting Directors in the mainstream media who are not able to scout the Talent within the Trans Community and thus pass on the opportunities to cisgender people. Miss Trans Queen India is a platform to raise the scope of trans visibility and acceptance in the Fashion & Beauty Industry.
It is a 3-day event consisting of exciting rounds for Talent, State Costume, Glam Gown along with constructive grooming sessions by well-known professional mentors from the industry such as Rita Gangwani, Akkash K. Aggarwal, Shaine Soni, Dr. Varun Katyal, Amruta Soni and some insightful political discussions on What are your rights as a Trans Person in India, How we can implement the lives of Trans Community, How to be a representative and a spokesperson of the community, etc.
The winner of Miss Trans Queen India further goes on the International Platform: Miss International Queen in Thailand to Represent our Country.
