New Report Shows Trans* People Experience Huge Gaps in Health Care Access

Recently, a report was released detailing some of the issues that arise when trans people enter the health care arena. Cara over at feministe does a great job summarizing the information:

Reliable statistics on trans* people are notoriously difficult to come by, and among those that exist, many are outdated and/or derived from very small sample sizes. This U.S. survey included over 6,400 trans women, trans men, and people imperfectly grouped together as “gender non-conforming,” from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. That makes it really big news, and a really important resource for information.
