Transsexual runs for Indian presidency

There is no shortage of candidates in the Indian presidential election, including one 45-year-old transsexual, who says it’s her sexual identity that will defeat the political heavyweights.

Election fever is raging in India.Thursday alone will see more than 140 million eligible voters at the ballot box across 124 constituencies. Tens of millions of votes have already been cast.

While the numbers involved are vast it’s also about the individual. Daya Rani Kinnar is set to clash with political heavyweights. She is not only an independent candidate, but also a transsexual.
