A care facility for women in India is under scrutiny after closing its doors to a woman who showed “lesbian tendencies.”

Sri Chitra Home for the Destitute and Infirm kicked out the 19-year old girl named Shilpa in June because they suspected she was a lesbian according to Gay Star News. Her case came to light after trans activist Syama S. Prabha helped take on her case.

“At present, I have to travel all the way from my home to pursue my education in the city,” Shilpa said. “Though the administration had told me that I was being expelled for my lesbian tendencies, officially they said the reason was indiscipline.”

Currently, Shilpa is pursuing a case against the home through the state’s District Legal Services Authority. Representatives from the home have not shown up to the case proceedings and have not responded to the media.
