This article aims to describe the discriminations experienced by transgender and explore the regulations addressing it. Transgender is a sexual and gender minority under the group of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender). This study is a literature review exploring data collected from several source documents such as articles published in national and international journals, mass media, and other various related reports. Transgender, like other minority groups, experience several unpleasant and discriminatory treatments. Transgender categorized as the most vulnerable due to their high level of visibility to be identified compared with other parts of the groups. They experience such discrimination is not only in their private domains like in their family and neighborhood but also in the public environment such as workplaces, schools, and other public service areas. We all know that all laws prohibit any forms of discrimination, yet not many countries having specific legal protection addressing this issue were found, including Indonesia. The exploration result of this study contributes awareness to all of us, more specifically to the government, to have more insights about advancing social justice for all, including transgender as vulnerable groups.
