TISS Gets India's First Gender-Neutral Hostel And We Couldn't Be Happier 

It's a first we're all so proud of. 

India has taken it's first progressive step towards gender- neutrality at Tata Institute of Social Sciences in the form of a hostel space.

17 students have moved into this separate block that will host transgender, or gender non-conforming students. 

Earlier this year, the institute gave its students the option of the gender-neutral salutation ‘Mx’ in their certificates. So graduating students could choose from Ms, Mr, Mrs, and Mx honorifics.
