In 2015, nearly 28,000 people took the US Trans Survey, the largest survey of trans folks ever in the US. It was a major milestone in the collection of data on the lived experiences of a community that has been historically been both under and misrepresented in this country.
Much has happened since then. There have been some incredible victories in the fight for transgender and gender diverse rights. Unfortunately, there have also been many attacks on this community, from physical violence against individuals to legislative discrimination targeting the daily lives of trans folks, particularly youth.
Now more than ever, we must ensure that the voices of transgender and gender diverse people are heard and counted. The 2022 US Trans Survey aims to do just that. Let’s learn more.
In the latest episode of Fenway Health’s Pride in Our Health podcast, we’re chatting with Alex del Rosario, Outreach Manager for the US Trans Survey at the National Center for Transgender Equality, about why this year’s survey is so important.
We encourage everyone who identifies under the trans or gender diverse umbrella to pledge to take the US Trans Survey at ustranssurvey.org!
