Uber Eats has partnered with its first transgender delivery associate, L Preethisha, to commemorate the LGBT Pride Month.
Preethisha begins her day at 11:00 AM, runs an average of 11 deliveries per day, and gets back home by midnight. So far, she has completed 200 deliveries.
“When customers notice that I’m a transgender, they are more respectful,” she says, and adds, “not only do they wish me luck, but also rate me highly on the app.”
The trans-woman now wants to set an example for other members of the transgender community, hoping to rehabilitate them from sex work.
