Chapter 11


I met Ram in the town of Nabunturan where she runs a café-con-library together with her cousin. As a gender non-conformist, she often faces biased opinion or speech (e.g. while working for an NGO supporting the mining community). Thinking about the divinity which transwomen and -men in many different cultures worldwide once had, Ram says everyone needs to reclaim that very divinity right here and now to empower themselves.
