Kozhikode: Calicut University has for the first time organised an art festival event under the transgender category and one student has probably become the first to participate in the all-new competitive category of any institutional contest.

Malappuram Government College student Ria Isha became the first transgender to participate in the C-Zone Folk Dance in the university’s 50-year arts festival history. This comes after Ria filed a petition with university authorities seeking to participate in arts and sports events under a third category. However, age restrictions kept the 26-year-old from competing in sports events.

Transgenders were competing either in girls or boys sections until now.
