description The present study analyzes the psychometric properties of the Social Distance Scale toward Trans Persons (DS-T) in a sample of psychology professionals and graduate students. In addition, it analyzes whether there are significant differences in the social distance to the trans community between psychology students and professionals. The sample had 127 participants, who were recruited based on their availability. The results confirm that the scale has a one-dimensional structure. The 13 items developed by the researchers met the criteria of discrimination and showed appropriate factor loads. The Cronbach alpha internal consistency index for DS-T was .99. There were no significant differences in social distance towards trans people between psychology students and professionals. It was determined how distance and closeness constitute the extremes of empathy, so the larger the distance from a person or community, the lower the probability of being empathetic toward them.
