The Coimbatore Transgender Association held a peaceful protest against the Bill and said that it is contrary to the Supreme Court's verdict of 2014, and it does not understand the feelings of the transgender community.

The transgender community says that through this Bill, questions are being raised about their identity. There is a provision for conducting a surgery for the transgender community in this Bill. The Bill also says that after a medical examination, a magistrate level officer will release official documents and approve a person being a transgender. This Bill has also made provisions such as longer stay with their family and taking the help of a rehab centre, for the transgender community.

The community says that the discrimination against them in society should end first of all, and for this, they will go to any lengths.
