- 1 School of International and Public Affairs, China
While most of the studied focused on primary data to portray the deteriorated socioeconomic status of transgender community in Pakistan. This study takes a leverage to employ theoretical approach towards understanding the situation of Transgender community in Pakistan. This study sheds light on the problem of prejudice and social exclusion of transgender community in Pakistan’s society. Despite that government’s efforts to formalize legislations for the recognition of Transgender people and application of welfare policies for the betterment of transgender community, the social acceptance of transgender community is still a goal far from being achieved. The gender hierarchy of Pakistan still sees transgender people at the bottom. This study suggests the need for awareness for the gender equality and equal rights for transgender community in Pakistan.
