Transsexualism or gender identity disorder affects person’s gender identity. Aim: This study was to describe socio‑demographic
characteristics in a population of transsexuals. Materials and Methods: We studied 44 persons of both sexes with diagnostic criteria of gender
identity disorder who were referred to the Legal Medicine Organization of Fars, southwest of Iran during the time period 2005‑۲۰۱۰٫ The
general practitioners examined the following socio‑demographic characteristics and then recorded them in a semi‑structured questionnaire,
which was developed by the Forensic Medicine Center in Shiraz: Sex, age, educational level, place of residence, marital status, duration
of treatment, and employment status. Results: A total of 44 persons (18 (40.9%) males versus 26 (59.1%) females) were referred for sex
change during the study period. The sex ratio was 0.69:1. The mean age was 27.6 ± ۲٫۹ years. The majority of patients were diploma and
higher diploma education (77.3%), lived in urban areas (81.8%), were employed (56.9%), were single (93.1%), and were under six months
of hormonal treatment (61.4%). Conclusions: It seems that social acceptance is lower for male to female transsexuals, since these patients
have lower employment and literacy statuses. Further studies should be designed to evaluate and deeper analyze more socio‑demographic,
clinical, and psychiatric variables about transsexual patients.
