US Trans Survey

In 2011, NCTE and the National LGBTQ Task Force released the National Transgender Discrimination Survey. Interviews with over 6,400 transgender and gender-nonconforming people made it the largest such study ever conducted. The study has been a game changer—both for our policy work and for cultural change. For the first time, we were able to quantify the discrimination and violence transgender people face. NCTE has now completed a second iteration of the survey that measures how things are now and how they have changed over the past five years. Come hear about these latest results and discuss some implications for the trans community.
