Abstract

The transgender community has been looked down upon for generations owing to societal stigma and plain ignorance. This has resulted in a community, brimming with potential, being grossly underutilized. If nudged in the right direction and given impetus in so far as education and equal opportunities are concerned, we would have a solid block in the working class of our country, proactively contributing to the economy and the society in general. The paper has explored the living conditions of transgenders in our country, the prejudice and bias they battle and the limited options they have for sustenance by means of the research. The objective is to understand the existent state of transgenders and inquire into ways of alleviating poverty among them by the encouragement of formal education, spreading awareness on diseases plaguing the community and sensitization of common public to enable equal job opportunities, thereby directly surging their self-esteem and productivity in the society
