Transgender teacher removed from services due to gender identity moves SC

“The grievance of the petitioner is that her services were terminated in schools of Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat after her gender identity was revealed. The petitioner says that she cannot pursue her remedies in two different high courts,” the bench said and fixed the plea for hearing after four weeks.

The counsel appearing for the transgender person said she was given a letter of appointment in an Uttar Pradesh school and also taught for six days before being removed.

In Gujarat school, she was given the letter of appointment and later denied the opportunity to join after her gender identity was known, the lawyer said.

The petitioner seeks enforcement of her fundamental rights.
