In Bangladesh, 29-year-old eunuch Tishnava Ann Shasher got a job as a news anchor for a TV channel that has become the country’s first eunuch news anchor.

This is the first time an eunuch has read the news on a TV channel in Bangladesh, according to the International News Agency.

The award went to 29-year-old Tishnawa Nansher, who got a job as a news anchor on the Bengali TV Boi branch on International Women’s Day.

For the first time yesterday, Tishnawa Ann Shasher read news on global politics and national issues, including news related to International Women’s Day, and could not control her emotions and cried at the most important moment of her life.

Speaking to the media later, Tishnawa described his ordeal, saying he had faced social attitudes and injustices all his life in search of his identity and had been sexually abused several times, including four suicide attempts.

Eunuchs are now being recognized at the government level in Bangladesh. In 2013, a law was passed to register as a third sex, and in 2018, the right to vote was granted.

Many welfare schemes were set up in 2019 and 2020, and the first religious seminary for eunuchs was opened in November last year.
