#SwaraVoices : Madhuri Sarode Sharma – The Path Breaker!
WHO IS THIS BEAUTIFUL PERSON?
Madhuri-ji is a 43-year-old transwoman from Old Bombay, who grew up with the dreams of being a dancer, a fashion designer and of course: a Path Breaker! Madhuri-ji is best known as the first Indian transperson to openly marry a cis-male! Starting out as friends, the couple has an incredibly heartwarming love story, and are today both entrepreneurs.
HOW IS SHE DOING RIGHT NOW?
For the last 20 years, she has been working with NGOs and CBOs who support the LGBTQ+ community. However, her professional life has many more facets:
-She wrote the LIC exam and became one of the first trans insurance agents
-She and her husband run a jewellery business, a craft they learnt from youtube!
WHAT ARE HER DREAMS?
She wants trans people to have choices and not get pushed into prostitution or begging. She hopes to see the day when there is at least one transwoman who makes a name for herself in every sector/sphere of influence! Personally, she dreams of starting a boutique store that employs transwomen and is a one-stop shop for all things fashion, including every style of clothing and jewellery!
HER THOUGHTS ON HOW WE CAN BE BETTER ALLIES:
She believes that it is young people who will lead the change that trans people need, and overturn the horrible, traditional, outdated expectations from transwomen. Her advice on steps to becoming better allies:
-Look within and around our own homes for trans or queer people and give them your love!
-Listen to them instead of judging
-Don’t be scared of them or isolate them, create safe spaces wherever you can
-Try to support them in any way you can including supporting education that will enable them to achieve the independence that we all deserve!
