Social transition is the social portion of a transition, in which a transgender person makes others aware of their gender identity. Some parts of social transition can include:

Social transition is one of the easiest to achieve, as unlike medical transition or legal transition it can be completed by the individual within their social group. However, it can also be daunting as there is a risk of a transphobic reaction, ranging from intentional misgendering to serious danger.

Many people choose to transition in different social groups at different points in time. For instance, someone may have socially transitioned with their friendship group, but not yet informed anyone in their workplace of their true gender.

In some cases, evidence of social transition for a period of time may be required in order to begin medical or legal transition. This is a form of gatekeeping.
