#ShortNews: Caritas India open to recruiting transgendered persons

Lamenting “traditional biases” against transgendered persons, the executive director of Caritas India said that his organization is “open to work with transgender people. I am even open to recruiting them.”

“People who are suffering for no fault of their own because of sexual confusion in their body require our attention and support,” said Father Frederick D’Souza, who distinguished “biological transgenders” from those who undergo sex-change surgery.

“We don’t want to confuse the two,” he added. “We have an opinion on those who undergo sex change, we are not in favor of that. We believe that the natural gender one is born with is what he/she is supposed to cherish and contribute to creation.”
