You only live once,so live it your way!

I came across a very inspiring video of Lady Akkai Padmashali, a human rights activist, born in a typical middle class family as a son. Yes, you heard it right! A son and his original name was Jagdish but soon  he realized from within that he was a woman and named himself as Akkai Padmashali.
In the below video, Akkai shares her journey of struggling for her gender identity, how she was not accepted as a woman by her own family, how she was bullied by her close friends and colleagues, how she chose to be a  sex worker and later joined Sangama NGO (An NGo based in Bangalore who works for transgender people mostly from poor and Non English background)and became a human rights activist.
Have a look at the  one of her interview , where she talks about her struggle and journey below:
