ABSTRACT
Since ages gender difference is always a debatable theme whether caused by nature,
evolution or environment. The birth of a transgender is dreadful not only for the child
but also for their parents. The pain of living in the wrong physique and treated as second
class victimized citizen is outrageous and fully harboured with vicious baseless negative
scruples. For so long, social exclusion had perpetuated inequality and deprivation
experiencing ingrained malign stigma and besieged victims of crime or violence across
their life spans. They are pushed into the murky way of life with a source of eternal
disgust, bereft sexual potency and perennial fear. Although they are highly visible but
very little is known about them. The common public needs to comprehend the ravaged
arrogance on these insensitive souls and assist in integrating them into the mainstream
by offering equal opportunity, treat with humanity and respect their dignity.
Entrepreneurship in the current age is endorsing the gender fairness movement.
Unstable careers and economic inadequacy had inclined one of the gender variant
people called Transgender to become entrepreneurs. These tiny budding entrepreneurs
resulted in economic transition by means of employment, free from the clutches of
stereotype jobs, raised standard of living and handful of financial empowerment.
Besides all these inhibitions, they were able to witness a platform for skill set
development that ignited them to enter into entrepreneurial domain. This paper
epitomizes skill sets involved in trans-entrepreneurs of Thoothukudi Municipal
Corporation of Tamil Nadu State and is a groundbreaking determination to sightsee
various skills incorporated and the impact on entrepreneurship.
Key words: Gender Differences, Transgender, Entrepreneurs, economic transition and

1. INTRODUCTION
In 1965, Psychiatrist John F. Oliven of Columbia University coined the term Transgender in
his reference work Sexual Hygiene and Pathology. Transgender are an extremely secretive
community steeped in mystery. This disastrous community is enforced to live on the
fringes of society, despised in fear, never loved and welcomed. They are forbidden to talk
about their lives to outsiders. They lead lives more akin to bonded labourers rather than free
democratic citizens of the country. Once they step into this lifestyle, they are embroiled in a
web of deceit and abuse in every turn. Indian Census has never recognized third gender for
years. It was only in the year 2011, the data of transgender were collected by Census
Department for employment, literacy and caste but was clubbed in male category. There is a
nascent proof of transgender population growing. Ministry of Law and Social Justice both at
the Central and State need to recognize the suffered transgender people. It is really weird to
understand that public call these sexual minorities with derogatory names, does not
recognize for being trapped in the wrong gender and had always kept them aloof. Despite
receiving some recognition and social acceptance, they remain coldshouldered not only
in Indian societies but also worldwide. For a meaning change, formal legislation must be
passed to transform a social changeover with acceptance, respect and dignity.
2. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The study assumes the following objectives:
1. To understand the demographic contour of the transgender entrepreneurs.
2. To explore numerous skills implied by transgender entrepreneurs in their ventures.
3. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
3.1. Research Design
This paper deals with the demographic summary in order to understand various business
skillsets applied by transgender entrepreneurs in their ventures. The literature review was
obtained from library sources, prominent e-journals, Madurai Transgender Resource Centre,
reputed newspaper online-news, notable author books/ biographies and Novels. The questions
were constructed using Likert’s Five-point scale and the variables were identified from the
review of literature with the help of transgender experts’ like Community Link Leaders, Para
Legal Volunteer and District Non-Official Third Gender Welfare Board Members. The
Reliability test was conducted using Cronbach’s Alpha which was 0.723.
3.2. Sample Selection Structure
The topographical region selected for the study was Thoothukudi Municipal Corporation of
Tamil Nadu State which is very popularly known for entrepreneurial hub and industrial
coverage. The sample elements were 270 transgender entrepreneurs using Daniel’s Formula.
The entire population was 340 in the Thoothukudi Municipal Corporation which was derived
from Transgender District Welfare Association. The sampling technique adopted was Simple
Random method for the study.

3.3. Sample Calculation
In case of Finite Population the following simple formula represented by Daniel 1999 can be
used.
N = Z2
P (1-P) / d2
* 100
where :
n = sample size
Z = Z statistic or a level of confidence at 95% or 1.96
P = expected prevalence or proportion (in proportion if 20%, P = 0.2)
d = precision (in proportion if 5%, d = 0.05)
The computations of sample are given below:
= (1.96)2
* 0.2 ( 1 – 0.2) / 0.05 * 100
= 3.8416 * 0.2 (1 – 0.2) / 0.05 * 100
= 0.16832 (0.8) / 0.05 * 100
= 0.134656 / 0.05 * 100
= (2.61312 * 100)
= 269.312
= 270
3.4. Statistical Tools Used
IBM SPSS Statistics Version 21 was used for data analysis. The items were analyzed through
Percentile Analysis via Descriptive Statistics and the impact of skills has been clearly examined
with the help of fitted Regression mode.
4. DATA ANALYSIS
4.1. Demographic Profile of the Transgender Entrepreneurs

Dr. V. Josephine Lourdes De Rose PG & Research Department of Commerce, Holy Cross College (Autonomous), Teppakulam, Affiliated to Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu State, India. *Corresponding Author ABSTRACT Since ages gender difference is always a debatable theme whether caused by nature, evolution or environment. The birth of a transgender is dreadful not only for the child but also for their parents. The pain of living in the wrong physique and treated as second class victimized citizen is outrageous and fully harboured with vicious baseless negative scruples. For so long, social exclusion had perpetuated inequality and deprivation experiencing ingrained malign stigma and besieged victims of crime or violence across their life spans. They are pushed into the murky way of life with a source of eternal disgust, bereft sexual potency and perennial fear. Although they are highly visible but very little is known about them. The common public needs to comprehend the ravaged arrogance on these insensitive souls and assist in integrating them into the mainstream by offering equal opportunity, treat with humanity and respect their dignity. Entrepreneurship in the current age is endorsing the gender fairness movement. Unstable careers and economic inadequacy had inclined one of the gender variant people called Transgender to become entrepreneurs. These tiny budding entrepreneurs resulted in economic transition by means of employment, free from the clutches of stereotype jobs, raised standard of living and handful of financial empowerment. Besides all these inhibitions, they were able to witness a platform for skill set development that ignited them to enter into entrepreneurial domain. This paper epitomizes skill sets involved in trans-entrepreneurs of Thoothukudi Municipal Corporation of Tamil Nadu State and is a groundbreaking determination to sightsee various skills incorporated and the impact on entrepreneurship. Key words: Gender Differences, Transgender, Entrepreneurs, economic transition and skill set development

Josephine Lourdes De Rose, Broad Unexposed Skills of Transgender Entrepreneurs, International Journal of Management (IJM), 11(12), 2020, pp. 4335-4342. https://iaeme.com/Home/issue/IJM?Volume=11&Issue=12 1. INTRODUCTION In 1965, Psychiatrist John F. Oliven of Columbia University coined the term Transgender in his reference work Sexual Hygiene and Pathology. Transgender are an extremely secretive community steeped in mystery. This disastrous community is enforced to live on the fringes of society, despised in fear, never loved and welcomed. They are forbidden to talk about their lives to outsiders. They lead lives more akin to bonded labourers rather than free democratic citizens of the country. Once they step into this lifestyle, they are embroiled in a web of deceit and abuse in every turn. Indian Census has never recognized third gender for years. It was only in the year 2011, the data of transgender were collected by Census Department for employment, literacy and caste but was clubbed in male category. There is a nascent proof of transgender population growing. Ministry of Law and Social Justice both at the Central and State need to recognize the suffered transgender people. It is really weird to understand that public call these sexual minorities with derogatory names, does not recognize for being trapped in the wrong gender and had always kept them aloof. Despite receiving some recognition and social acceptance, they remain coldshouldered not only in Indian societies but also worldwide. For a meaning change, formal legislation must be passed to transform a social changeover with acceptance, respect and dignity. 2. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY The study assumes the following objectives: 1. To understand the demographic contour of the transgender entrepreneurs. 2. To explore numerous skills implied by transgender entrepreneurs in their ventures. 3. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 3.1. Research Design This paper deals with the demographic summary in order to understand various business skillsets applied by transgender entrepreneurs in their ventures. The literature review was obtained from library sources, prominent e-journals, Madurai Transgender Resource Centre, reputed newspaper online-news, notable author books/ biographies and Novels. The questions were constructed using Likert’s Five-point scale and the variables were identified from the review of literature with the help of transgender experts’ like Community Link Leaders, Para Legal Volunteer and District Non-Official Third Gender Welfare Board Members. The Reliability test was conducted using Cronbach’s Alpha which was 0.723. 3.2. Sample Selection Structure The topographical region selected for the study was Thoothukudi Municipal Corporation of Tamil Nadu State which is very popularly known for entrepreneurial hub and industrial coverage.

Sample Calculation In case of Finite Population the following simple formula represented by Daniel 1999 can be used. N = Z2 P (1-P) / d2 * 100 where : n = sample size Z = Z statistic or a level of confidence at 95% or 1.96 P = expected prevalence or proportion (in proportion if 20%, P = 0.2) d = precision (in proportion if 5%, d = 0.05) The computations of sample are given below: = (1.96)2 * 0.2 ( 1 – 0.2) / 0.05 * 100 = 3.8416 * 0.2 (1 – 0.2) / 0.05 * 100 = 0.16832 (0.8) / 0.05 * 100 = 0.134656 / 0.05 * 100 = (2.61312 * 100) = 269.312 = 270 3.4. Statistical Tools Used IBM SPSS Statistics Version 21 was used for data analysis. The items were analyzed through Percentile Analysis via Descriptive Statistics and the impact of skills has been clearly examined with the help of fitted Regression mode. 4. DATA ANALYSIS 4.1.
