TRANS GENDERS: An Analysis of their Body, Mind and Culture
A transgender individual may have characteristics that are normally associated with a particular gender and identify elsewhere on the traditional gender continuum, or exist outside of it as other, age, gender neutral third gender etc. Furthermore, many transgender people experience a period of identity development that includes better understanding one’s self-image, self-reflection, and self-expression. More specifically, the degree to which individuals feel genuine, authentic, and comfortable within their external appearance and accept their genuine identity is referred to as transgender congruence. This study explored these factors of body, mind and their culture among this population in Bengaluru, India
