The aim of the current study was to seek and add to the sparse data regarding transgenders experience of sexual harassment and its effect on their psychological well-being while finding out about the role of resilience in moderating between these variables. Purpose of the current study was to examine the relationship between sexual harassment, resilience and psychological wellbeing in transgender. Sample comprised of 100 trans-genders. Correlational Research Design was used in the present study. Snowball and purposive sampling technique was used for the data collection and sample was taken from different areas of Lahore, Pakistan. Street Harassment Questionnaire (Sullivan, 2011) was used to assess sexual harassment, State-Trait Resilience Scale (Hiew, 2002) for assessment of resilience and Ryff’s Scale of Psychological Wellbeing (Ryff, 1989) was used to measure psychological wellbeing of transgenders. It was hypothesized that there is likely to be a negative relationship between sexual harassment and psychological wellbeing, and resilience will moderate the relationship between sexual harassment and psychological wellbeing in transgenders. Pearson Product Moment correlation revealed that there is negative relationship between sexual harassment and psychological wellbeing and positive relationship was found between age and psychological wellbeing in transgenders. Further, hierarchical regression exhibited that resilience moderated between sexual harassment and psychological wellbeing in transgenders. Findings have clear implications for emotional wellbeing of experts, counselors, psychologists, instructors and other people who connect with transgender.
