Abstract:

According to the definition in the English Oxford Living Dictionary, the term ‚shemale’ means a passive male homosexual or hermaphrodite. In India, transgender people are legally recognized third sex. At the same time, on the one hand their social position is very high – they are respected, they take part in the most important rituals in India, and the rest of India are often afraid of them, because their unusual behavior can bring disgrace to the family. On the other hand, it is a socially excluded group, often deprived of the right to health care or the right to education. This article is designed to bring the Polish reader closer to the legal regulations regarding transgender people in India and their social position. In addition, the actual observance of the rights of these persons will also be examined and the most up-to-date reports of independent organizations protecting human rights in this area will be discussed
