Attended by Prajakta Koli, Niharika NM, Raghav Juyal, Bhuvan Bam and Trinetra Gummaraju,Trinetra Talks about the challenges of being a trans-woman and the acceptance struggle she said that aspires to be more than just a content creator.
Said Gummaraju in conversation with Sneha Menon Desai. “I do it, I want to act more, I want to be taken seriously as an actor also and not just be the diversity higher.”
With my books and my studies, when I do my thing. I really enjoy my peace. After Rainbow Rishta, people asked me “Are you really that desparate to find a man trinetra? Some has to compete with the peace I have in Solitude.
Not getting parts is a good thing as then clearly its not about the numbers. With trans-representation, it’s a whole other ball game and it’s just about starting to happen.
just to have someone from the community is there. You can tell after reading a script that the gaze is not empathetic. It doesn’t come from genuine storytelling, it comes from the need for masala in a story. Where your transness becomes the masala.
Because it is democratized storytelling. Some stories would never get told on the big screen. Meher on Made in heaven would’ve never gotten told. I am fortunate to have started with that.
