Mairembam Ronaldo Singh: In the web series Paatal Lok, I play the role of Cheeni, a trans-woman abandoned by her family at a young age. Her character is close to my heart—I could easily identify with her for I too have faced difficulties as a trans woman. The negative perception that society has of people like us makes me unhappy. Discrimination, oppression and isolation are the challenges we need to overcome in our quest for justice. I hope to spread awareness regarding trans issues and fight for equal rights.
