India's First Transgender Dance Troupe, Dancing Queens Is Performing In Mumbai This Week
They Dance But For A Cause
Dancing Queens was founded in 2009 by Abhina Aher, Urmi Jhadav and Madhuri Sarode . It’s the country’s first professional transgender dance troupe.
The group comprises of almost 25 members and their aim is to raise awareness about the transgender community, as well as promoting their welfare in the country. They do this through events across the country and use dance as a medium to talk about the struggles of the community. At the same time, they also make a case for equal rights for the community.
What We Love
Dancing Queens often perform around the country, and through the events they raise money that goes to their foundation. Though India officially recognises the third gender, it is a long way before the trans community gets their equal rights – and through dance they use the platform to express their community’s thoughts and feelings.
It’s also lovely to see a community take the matters into their hands, and fight for a cause creatively.
