Navi Mumbai's Third Eye Cafe has employed transgender people, to help them live with dignity

Third Eye Cafe in Vashi, Navi Mumbai, is setting an example for society through its decision to employ people from the transgender community, to serve guests. Nimesh Shetty, one of the founders of this cafe, says, "This is one platform where transgender people can come, get trained, work and progress in life."

The cafe provides a platform for this section of queer people to gain training and take up jobs, thus helping them integrate into the mainstream. Six of its employees are from the transgender community, and they are open to hiring more.

Shetty also believes that the stigma attached to transgenders is reducing, as compared to how they were treated in the past.
