India's First LGBT Powered Cab Service To Roll Out Soon

Laws and judgements proves futile unless they are exercised in real life. Thus, Humsafar Trust in association with Wings Travels is all set to give India its first radio cab service by LGBT community. This empowerment initiative is the first step towards ensuring job opportunities in the mainstream industries. Though the first service will be started in Mumbai, but slowly will also spread to the other cities of the country.

The implementation of this initiative is a good news not only for LGBT community, but society as a whole. We are eagerly waiting for the service to roll out in Mumbai and then in other parts of the country. Aren't you?
