Put prejudices aside: Singh

Members of the Amithi Fiji Project have highlighted the need to put prejudices aside when it comes to the world of diverse sexual taste.

Project coordinator Niru Singh said it was important that values of equality and social justice prosper in Fiji.

“As Fiji is working towards the goal of becoming progressive nation, we need to be reminded that the functioning of a modern progressive state machinery cannot rely on prejudices of a few misinformed people,” she said.

In Fiji, Trans people continue to face harassment, discrimination, humiliation, condemnation and degradation based on their gender identity and expression,” she explained.
