Vivek Shraya, who came out as trans in 2016, said that
her Hindu community helped nurture her gender nonconformity
in the 1980s. However, her journey has not

death threats in 2017, and responded by creating a comic
book called Death Threat with visual artist Ness Lee.

telling of her time in office.
