The continuing marginalization of transgenders manifested in diverse forms including the stigma, limited work opportunities and restricted integration with the community remain a concern in Indian society. This research offers an intersectional analysis of interaction between gender, sexuality and work in a growing industrial city by examining the case of transwomen domestic workers in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. The thesis argues that the interaction between gender and work both shapes and is shaped by community organization and development. In the case of transwomen domestic workers the thesis finds the possibilities of inclusion and social transformation in context of the urban space. The qualitative research examines the nature of this inclusion, its condition and challenges in context of a city through the interpretation that transwomen themselves attach to their work and its impact on their lives.
