India's first-ever Queer Beauty Parlour in Delhi is proving a runaway success with Delhi's transgender citizens, reports The Times of India.

The parlour provides not only beauty solutions but also a space for trans people to comfortably be themselves.

"Transgenders who wanted a feminine appearance found it almost impossible to get any beauty treatment anywhere," explains a local gay community worker.
