Bollywood screenwriter Gazal Dhaliwal has lived with deep prejudice and fear in her life that few of us can even imagine. She was born with gender dysphoria. Imagine having to live a façade, to pretend that you are a boy – when you know with your every fiber that you are a girl. These experiences have given fuel for her life and she is on a mission to tell the story of misunderstood characters – like herself. She urges us to put into question – what is normal - and to look beyond appearances to the human being beneath. Gazal shows us how stories can change hearts and save lives. To give hope to others who feel hopeless and to connect all human beings.

    Very well stated. Compelling. Here's to all of us seeking to understand each other and to see each other by how we each can benefit by loving each other for who we are. <3 Respect as a human being <3 yes! Telling our stories so others can understand, and relate, this is the path to creating more peace. Thank you so much for sharing a story of hope.

    Gazal, You are opening up a brave new world. I am not in any of your situations, but I love the humanity that you are displaying and speaking of. If that's not love, I don't know what is. God makes room for everyone's talents. I am sure that He/She will make room for your great heart. It is quite obvious that His/Her Blessing are upon you and flowing through you to each and everyone you meet. Let you light shine forth, and let the universe provide. Love and Hugs
