The well-known place for shemales in Mumbai is Kamathipura area of south-central Mumbai, which is a sex hub sandwiched between Nagpada in the east and Grant Road in the west. Kamathipura, which is divided among roughly 14 lanes, is one of the prime locations for access to shemales. It is also one of the oldest red light areas in Mumbai and 2nd largest in India.
The community of sex-workers includes a considerable number of shemales, who offer their services to customers through pimps, who themselves reach out to the potential customers seeking shemales in the area. Falkland Road, which is officially known as PB Marg or Pathe Bapurao Marg, is the extension of Kamathipura, which connect it to Grant Road, which, in turn, connect to all uptown areas of Mumbai including Parel, South Mumbai, Worli etc.
It’s in the late evening that Falkland Road turns into a paradise for customers who wish to access shemales. Prostitution in India is not legalized and hence the sex-worker industry is operated in disguise. One can find shemales and other sex workers plying on the side lanes and at local train stations after 11 PM. They operate within a well-knitted community of shemales and transgender, who also have their prior arrangements with local police to turn a blind eye. Still, the risk of an unexpected police crackdown can’t be ruled out.
