Transgender rights in the spotlight in Maryland and Texas
In February, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) released the first study of its kind on discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming people.
The report painted a scary picture. 41 percent of respondents said they had attempted suicide, which is 26 times the national average. More than 90 percent said they faced some kind of discrimination. In places of public accommodation, over half of respondents reported being verbally harassed, and eight percent said they had been physically attacked or assaulted.
