Queer Youth Group started this petition to YouTube and

Rukshana Kapali, a young transwoman activist who was approached by a reporter from Kantipur TV HD to publish a story about her struggle to get across barrier of education was misgendered in the content. The journalist from Kantipur TV HD who interviewed her told her that her issues in higher education will be presented in the news. However, when the news was published, Rukshana was addressed in an incorrect way.

Rukshana not just verbally, but also through email, sent as many resources as possible to make the journalist aware about LGBTIQ+ issues. However, Kantipur Media discarded her voice and appropriated it. When she raised her voice against being misgendered, she was told that Kantipur isn't a spokesperson for her and they are not going to speak her words. She also filed a dispute in Press Council but they could do nothing; Kantipur Media got away with a letter of explanation saying why it was okay for them to address Rukshana as third gender despite she asserting that she is not third gender, neither part of the third gender community.

Kantipur Media is arrogant and not willing to take down the content. The media being a prominent one, the news coverage is impacting on Rukshana's everyday life, particularly during legal advocacy. There cannot be a justification where someone gets addressed with something they don't identify at all.

These are the three videos Kantipur Media uploaded on Youtube which we are petitioning to be taken down :

1. https://youtu.be/s2V3XEJQ7bo
2. https://youtu.be/z3vlFuOIhfA  (21:00 - 22 : 17)
3. https://youtu.be/Cre2Yofkf9M

Rukshana's complaint on Youtube for privacy violation was not accepted. Therefore, please help us spread the word. We request Youtube to take down these video.
