This Restaurant In Mumbai Hires Transgender Staff To Promote Equal Rights

As a society, we've progressed in the past few years. But there are still a few people who choose to carry prejudice towards certain communities. And shattering those prejudices is Navi Mumbai’s Third Eye Café, that hires transgender employees because they believe in equal rights.

What Makes It Awesome

Started by Nimesh Shetty, Nitesh Kandarkar and Prasad Shetty, the restaurant has not only helped the transgender community to stand on their own feet without being forced into sex work and begging but has also given them the confidence to walk tall and proud in the society. The owners are very clear with the thought of not selling the restaurant because of the transgender staff, but because of the quality of food and ambiance. They look at his venture as a platform for the trans community to get better jobs.

But, this is not it. Your visit to the restaurant will not only help a community but will also satiate your hunger pangs as the place serves amazing food. The ambiance is also homely and the lighting is perfect. You will indeed have a wonderful time there.

The restaurant currently has six transgender employees out of the total strength of 20. Four work as table attendants, one works in the kitchen and one works as a manager.

Pro-Tip

Being the first restaurant in the country to have such a large proportion of transgender staff, Third Eye Café is a must visit for all the reasons. We wish the staff all the best and hope this effort spreads a positive message in the country.
