Desire, Behaviour and Identity: Envisaging Social Acceptance of Transgender Community in India

Sumit Arora

Gender and Sexuality has become a pivotal issue in today’s social world surmounting the barriers of biological sex and gender roles by focusing on the identity of an individual. Empowered by the long struggle of identity crisis, transgender community has now been given equal status in few of the States in India with a vision of social convergence and assimilation. Transgender community in India has gradually overcome the issues of stigma, discrimination and other social barriers pertaining to their identity more explicitly than ever before. The present paper aims at presenting the current status of transgender community in India and how a paradigm shift has occurred in our social structure and age old myths related to transgender community.
