Transgender and non-binary racial and ethnic minorities experience “significant discrimination” in mental-health care access, suggests a new report distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

African-American and Hispanic people who are transgender or non-binary — especially non-binary African Americans and Hispanic transgender women — encounter discrimination when they try to access mental-health care appointments, according to results from the first wave of a still-ongoing study by researchers at Tulane, Texas A&M, American and Georgia State Universities.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
