Struggle to fly as a trans man: India’s first transgender pilot

In India, the transgender community faces numerous discriminations. The Supreme Court recognised them as the third gender in 2014. Even though they had to deal with marginalisation, social exclusion, harassment in the educational setting, poor economic conditions, workplace discrimination, homelessness, transphobia, and other issues.

Famous Third genders of India

Padmini Prakash, K Prithika Yashini, Dr Manabi Bandopadhyay, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, Joyita Mondal, Nitasha Biswas Esther Bharathi, and Aryan Pasha are some of India’s prominent transgender achievers who overcame discrimination and oppression to become what they are today. Adam Harry, who follows the same path, is working hard to advance his career and identity.

Struggling Life Of India’s First Transman Pilot

Adam Harry was on his way to fulfilling a long-held dream of becoming a pilot when India’s aviation authorities declared him unfit to fly due to hormone therapy.


Adam was born to a conservative Muslim family in Kerala’s Thrissur district and was a female by birth. He was born into a middle-class family.

Becoming A Laughing stock

He became a laughingstock when his suppressed identity was revealed in front of his classmates, teachers, and society. But he wished to fly. As a result, he decided to pursue his dream in South Africa. Thus his parents took a loan to send him to a flying school in Johannesburg, South Africa.
