The transgender community in India is ignored and faces discrimination in every field. The community is not provided with health facilities, employment, education etc. Without the proper opportunities available and facing abandoned by their families they are left with no other choice than to beg in order to make a living and survive in this cruel world. The harassment, violence and discrimination faced by the community still remains unnoticed. The Supreme Court as well as the Constitution of India provides various rights prohibiting the discrimination against them, however, the ambiguity relating to the concept of gender and the rights of the third gender still persists. After the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s verdict in NALSA, there has been significant attention drawn towards the rights of the third gender community. Despite some positive steps and recognition of their sufferings the major problems that are faced by the community still remains unaddressed. This Research Paper seeks to examine the position of transgender community after the introduction of Transgender Bill and the recent developments and opportunities provided to them by the Government.
