Almost 20 years ago I wrote my undergraduate thesis on the Hijras of India. I spent 6 months exhausting the limited research that had been done on this community at the time. When I was done with my BA in religious studies, I went on to get my MS in Library Science. I felt it should be easier for people to find the great sources out there. It should be easier for people to connect with the research done by others. I created the guide and this blog to help collect the research done by anthropologist, doctors and other experts. I hope this helps others get access to the research. With that in mind, I am not a member of the community and I do not know any Hijras. I am happy to post appeals for help by researcher to allow you to connect with others. It has been almost 20 years since I did the research myself. It is not a topic I have kept up with that much. Your best resource: your local librarians. Libraries and Librarians are here to help you with research. They want to help you find resources. Use them.
