AbstractUsing the Participatory Action Research (PAR) method, the article examines the life experiences of transgender women and their cumulative effects on their psychological well-being. The conceptual framework enabled discussion series with the twenty-five respondents, which consisted of seven different discussion topics. The result shows that the participants have both positive and negative aspects of well-being; in particular, it was found that the positive aspects of well-being were higher among them. These findings later discussed the possible implications on social work practice and education in Nepal.
