People Like US (PLUS) – India

People Like Us (PLUS), a community-based organization of transgender youth dancers, runs programmes aimed at providing care and support to transgender people, men who have sex with men, and sex workers to change the social gender constructs that lead to stigma and discrimination. In the PLUS walk-in shelter, transgender people in need can access health care, education on the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, financial support, and counseling. The shelter helps to build the transgender sex worker community and integrates HIV programming with other development issues such as poverty and unsafe migration. As providers of HIV education and health services, PLUS members are firm believers in community participation, and partner strategically with local, regional, and international organizations to advocate for people affected by HIV.
