Understanding the marginalization of transgenders: Review of literature (2010-2017)


Author(s): Dr. Shivani Arora

Abstract: Review of literature on a particular topic, event or phenomenon allows us to develop a worldview, understand complexities and appreciate diversity. This research paper delves into the literature in terms of research studies, non fictional books, autobiographies, audio projects, State Initiatives, to develop an understanding of the unique subjective world of the transgenders, their issues tracing them back to pre-colonial India and possible solutions in terms of attitude reconstruction and increased acceptance. The literature review tries to understand the trans experiences with the society and focuses on themes relating to transgender rights and other social legal dimensions which pervade social inclusion for the transgenders. While it is true that the persons of transgender community experience a marginalized existence and are treated as second class citizens in their own country, the lack of authentic and robust data for transgender research adds fuel to the fire. For a civil society to function, altering transphobic misconceptions and revisiting social norms for the unmitigated inclusion of the transgenders is the need of the hour.
