Snapshot Report: Advancing Transgender Equality
August 2009 | Movement Advancement Project
“"Many LGB people don't fully understand how deeply certain issues affect trans people in their daily lives, or what it takes to solve them."”
In this publication, the Movement Advancement Project discusses the barriers to equality and challenges the transgender population faces. The four major categories covered are: physical and mental health, safety and physical security, legal documentation and relationships, and employment and self-sufficiency. This snapshot report is excerpted from the full report by the same title.
