An Exploratory study of discriminations based on non-normative genders and sexualities

Sponsor: Ford Foundation

This research study involves generating an understanding of discrimination in the areas of health, education, shelter and housing, public infrastructure and utilities, and political formations, and involves the work of researchers across the country. Discrimination here is understood not just as incidents or moments of certain kinds of conduct or behavior, but also as the contexts and structural conditions that enable or institutionalize such conduct, or the terms of inclusion into various systems that keep out various persons and are experienced as discrimination.

At this point, we are attempting to interpret what we have been hearing in our fieldwork over these past two years. As we develop the final report, we have been sharing our findings in various fora since June end.
