• Description

The National Center for Transgender Equality joined with the TransLatin@ Coalition to release this detailed report about the specific experiences of Latino/a transgender people in many areas of life, from education and employment to health care and police interactions. The report builds upon NCTE's groundbreaking 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey—the largest ever survey of transgender people in the nation, with nearly 28,000 respondents.

Findings from the full USTS report revealed the disturbing patterns of discrimination and mistreatment that transgender people in the survey faced. These experiences were amplified for transgender people of color, including Latino/a transgender people, who faced deeper and broader forms of mistreatment in many of the most basic elements of life.
