Laxminarayen Tripathi, or Laxmi as she also goes by, was born in Mumbai in 1979, but she was born in the wrong body. In her autobiography Me Laxmi, Me Hijra, she tells the story of how she became a hijra, part of an ancient Indian tradition in which men who identify as women live together. She is today an author and an activist, but the road there has not been an easy one. Meet her in conversation with Mira Beckstrøm Laurantzon.
