During one of the Human Rights debates, the question emerged was whether the gender fluids be able to qualify for women rights when they feel their sexual orientation is parallel to that of a woman. The following paper is research revolving around such question mulling over whether to include the LGBTQ+ community, namely intersex, transgenders and gender fluids, under the blanket of women rights and feminism or form a yet another group. The questions become pertinent since the already meagre benefits catered to the women gets abridged with inclusion of the LGBTQ+ in the feminist coterie. The Feminists movement has been around since 17th century while LGBTQ+ has been brewing since the late 1960s. In the Indian realm, since there is no concrete law to buttress the LGBTQ community’s stand, this question owes an answer, making the fulcrum of which future laws could be made. The researcher seeks to answer the question in the title with a lens of the Indian landscape.
