Abstract: 

In this Paper, through the analysis of the narrations of the Roma, the presence of Gypsies community in Tehran was studied. The liminal identity of Gypsies has been explained based on their four most frequent interactional behaviors four interact more frequent in recent times; namely four cycles of beggingconsumption, imprisoned – out of the prison, addiction - non-addiction and unstable sexual relationships. Gypsies are studied as a community in transition in urban areas such as Khak Sefid, DarvazehQar and Labekhat.This article will show that as a result of modernization of Iran, Gypsies have experienced a transition but remain at liminal Stage and in the Liminalty. This leads to a liminal identity of Gypsies and they have not been able to go to the next stage, the stage of post-liminality and to integrate in the structures of Iran in general and of Tehran in particular.
