India's First Transgender Band Released Its First Song, Awesome!

Transgenders are still ill-treated in most parts of India and this humiliation that they receive out of nothing but a taboo. A taboo that has led people to believe that transgenders are something to be hated. However, the picture is rapidly changing or so it seems because of what happened a couple of days ago. 
Y Films, the digital platform of YashRaj Films just launched the 6 Pack Band that happens to be India's first transgender band. The band is comprised of six transgender artists who are immensely talented. A few days ago, the band released its first song named "Hum Hai Happy".

In the voiceover Sharma says, "In India, the 'hijras' are a community almost in exile. Standing out at traffic signals after failing to blend in. Knocking on our windows in the hope for some kindness and perhaps a smile."
