Intra-psychic disarray of gender identity and sexual orientation: in the process of coming out as transsexual.

Das BS, Ghosh S.

Abstract

The present paper takes a step towards understanding the confusion that a transgender individual undergoes, while coming in terms with one’s gender identity. Here, we will be presenting a case study with few anecdotes to put forward concepts of negotiation, self-understanding, and disclosure. We will refer to the individual as ‘him’ as the person identifies himself as a male and is in the process of transition. Here, we have introduced the coming out process as a one-way and two-way process.
