In a society that detests transsexuals and treats them as social outcasts, Priyanka, 25, a transsexual, leads a respectable life, as a radio jockey, even as she attempts to uplift members of her community.

As RJ at 90.4 Radio Active, a community radio station, an initiative of JGI (Jain Group of Institutions), Priyanka hosts a programme titled ‘Yaaru Ivaru’ (who is this person?) every Thursday between 12.30 pm and 1 pm. “I am thoroughly enjoying my work,” says the radio host, who invites guests from the transsexual community and interviews them.
