Her struggle has been documented in “Anjali — Living Inside Someone Else’s Skin”, a film based on transsexual lives. She has also made a name for herself in the Nepali fashion industry.
Anjali Lama, who got her sex changed, says the issue of transgenders is a “scorching topic” globally and India could not have remained immune to it.
“Transgenders being ‘T’ of LGBTQ are undoubtedly a scorching topic in the global context. India too has not been untouched by this debate. There has been a continuous effort to bring in transgenders to the forefront and give them their due respect for their work,” she told sources.
“Except for a few, Indians are far more broad-minded and receptive to witness this inclusivity constructively,” Lama, whose father is a farmer, said. She has four brothers.
Lama is probably the first Nepali transgender model who has done well in the Nepali fashion industry. She was born in Nuwakot as a boy and was named Nabin Wabia. She changed her gender and became a woman once she moved to Kathmandu in 2010 for her higher studies.
Lama has recently been chosen to walk the ramp for Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2017 to be held in the first week of February at JioGarden, Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai.
