The figures recently reported regarding the conditions of transgender individuals in the USA seem more like numbers concerning casualties of war. As many as 80% has been a victim of violence; 40% has attempted suicide; 33% was denied basic healthcare services; and 30% lost his/her job after having declared a gender, different than what was perceived. These are only a few of the data that have emerged in a sample of 30,000 trans collected by the National Center for Transgender Equality, the leading USA organization working on behalf of the rights of people who identify with a gender that is different than the one that had been assigned them at birth, by nature.
