What is India like for transexuals, third genders, and 'non-western masculine' guys in general?

I noticed that transsexuals and third genders were given minority rights by the supreme court, even-though homosexuals were persecuted under Section 377A by saying having sex was a crime.

I presume that there is some differences between India and the West in terms of how femininity and masculinity are seen; it's quite common in East Asia for men to style themselves in ways that would be considered "too girly" in the West, and even going as far into things like Third Gender.

How does India view transsexuals, third genders, and qualities that would be considered "feminine" in western culture?
