The media is pervasive in the society. Media is crucial in the spread of information. The transgender community often gets misrepresented in the media. The media significantly shapes public perceptions, attitudes, and understanding of various social issues. Over the years, media coverage of transgender individuals has undergone a transformative evolution, reflecting a growing awareness and commitment toward inclusivity. Transgender individuals, historically marginalized and misrepresented in the media, are now given more visibility and representation. This shift in media coverage is a crucial step towards fostering a more inclusive society and promoting the rights and dignity of transgender individuals. While progress is still being made, there has been a notable increase in visibility and understanding of transgender issues within the media landscape. This paper examined the evolving media coverage of transgender individuals and also explored positive representation, notable initiatives, and the impact of these changes on public perceptions and transgender visibility.
