Groundbreaking Study Finds Pervasive Discrimination Against Transgender People

Groundbreaking Study Finds Pervasive Discrimination Against Transgender People: "The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) today released a comprehensive new report, “Injustice at Every Turn,” revealing the depth of discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming people in a wide range of areas, including education, health care, employment, and housing. The study, based on the results from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), was based on responses from over 6,450 participants. The NTDS is the first large-scale national study of discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming Americans, and paints a more complete picture than any prior research to date."

The findings are not a surprise to anyone working in this field. Studies like this are, however, very useful in understanding the pervasiveness and depth of discrimination out there. The study is definitely worth a thorough read.
