REVIVE 2.0

Revive is PeriFerry’s in-house corporate training program that aims to create the next generation of doers, leaders and visionaries from the transgender community. Through comprehensive skill enhancement that also fosters empathy, Revive presents an accessible way for the transgender individuals to venture into the corporate world of work; ultimately furthering equality and inclusivity.


In Oct 2019, we launched our first Residential Training & Employment Program powered by ANZ Bank. 25 people were provided a whole month of safe shelter and were trained by the Revive Team. This program was a massive success achieving 100% placement through an inclusive job fair where MNCs like - Walmart, Accenture, Vodafone, Societe Generale, Deutsche Bank, ANZ, Landmark Group had participated.

We followed that up with our second edition of Revive - with ThoughtWorks and hosted 40 people from the community

WIPRO Experience Zone

Carnival? Games? Experiential Learning? Fun?? Happily, our experience zones blend them all.

 

An entirely new approach to LGBTQIA+ sensitization, experience zones throw boredom of sit-through lectures out of the window and replace it with engaging education through its various aptly named booths like In-situ, Connections, Ring-A-Thing, Guess Who, Spin The Wheel etc.

 

Oh and did we mention Phot booth? A place of pure fun with its complete collection of props, you need to take that pride selfie!

 

TEDxChennai 2019

 

History was made on the day of March 10, 2019, when the 8th edition of TEDx Chennai was successfully wrapped up becoming the first ever mainstream event in probably all of Asia which was hosted by an all trans crew.

 

1500+ attendees and 20 keynote speakers returned their homes knowing that when it comes to hosting a large scale event, competence can be found beyond the binary as well.

 

ThiruVizha 2017

 

Our first ever cultural festival, Thiruvizha 2017, gave the world only a small glimpse of the talent the transgender community possesses in various forms of performance arts.

 

It truly was a colourful celebration of self expressed through dancing, theatre acting, singing, painting etc. Plans from our end are already underway to establish a dedicated launchpad platform that will ultimately present the community with a sustainable opportunity to realise their passion on a much larger scale.

PeriFerry 1st Year Celebrations

 

We turned 1 in the year 2018 and this occasion was celebrated rightfully.

 

Running a social enterprise for a year is the testimonial fact that change happens, maybe slowly but surely. Magic moments are ensured when we transcend the differences together with the community, the change-makers and the friends.

 

INK Salon 2019

INK Talks are about diversity, and we are all in for diversity.

 

In the INK Salon hosted in April 2019 by SPI Cinemas, diversity found even more footing as the entire event crew was comprised of members from the trans community.
