This article comparatively examines the relationship between Attitude of youths before and after conducting an awareness programe on transgender to identify the significant difference in the research variables. For this purpose 100 girls studying BEd from a College of Education which is located in between Chennai and Thiruvallur. Single group experimental method is adopted by Pre Test-Program-Post Test. The study focused on the data collected and measured the Attitude of youths towards transgender. The data collected from the scores of Pre Test and Post Test were subjected to statistical analyses. The results of the analysis were presented in the form of tables and charts also interpreted appropriately to arrive at logical Findings and Conclusions. It may be concluded that on the basis of findings, the students have had better awareness and Attitude towards transgender after attending programs given by transgender. A control group included in the experimental study would have made the design stronger. More awareness programmes can be conducted in schools and colleges so that young people will be able to understand and accept the transgender instead of avoiding them due to their fears and unexamined beliefs. The study also shows how awareness programmes can make a shift in Attitudes towards transgender. More programmes must be planned especially for the students since it will sensitize them to the problems of marginalized groups like transgender either M2F or F2M.
