Abstract: Human being is always in need of identity, he is always ascribed to a particular sex or gender. The moment he is born he is accorded a gender. His or her gender always plays an important task for his identity. This gender identity becomes more important when necessary biological development starts to take place in his body. The situation becomes gruesome when biological development may not be in compliance with the biological development which is acceptable to the society. The norm of the society is only to accept the male and female version of the gender and nothing more than that. Gender recognition, apart from the male and female, has never been talked about. In common parlance, the excluded gender is the transgender or the third gender and more precisely, the LGBT. The third gender group has horrific stories to share with and it is an irony that we, as society have never understood them, be it in terms of their biological needs, their existence, their privacy and encompassing all, their right to life. The present paper makes an endeavour to analyse the socio-legal condition of the transgender and how far they have reached in their battle to live with dignity.
