Bauchara Maatha Festival

The Bauchara Maatha festival is a homage to the heroism of the patron goddess of the transgender Hindu community in India and around the world. In Kuala Lumpur, the festival is celebrated with fanfare in sub-urban localities with a large Hindu population like Sentul and Klang. This short-lived reportage was originally a story following the matriarch of this community who sadly passed away prematurely. The project now lives with a short collection of this elusive community and an extended video interview which is still in post-production.
