A quarter of trans people have had health care disrupted in the past year

Story by Alex Bollinger (29 March 2024)

For the past several years, Republican lawmakers all over the country have been attacking transgender people's access to gender-affirming health care, and soon half of the states in the U.S. will ban gender-affirming care for transgender youth.

A new study from Data for Progress found that 24% of transgender adults have had their access to gender-affirming care disrupted in the past year, and one in five said that they didn't go to a doctor or the hospital when they needed to in the past year because they were worried about discrimination or mistreatment.

Some states have taken away access to gender-affirming care for adults recently, like Florida, which increased the difficulty of accessing gender-affirming care for adults last year by passing a law that requires trans adults to be treated by a physician in person instead of by a nurse practitioner or via telehealth.

The survey also found that 38% of trans adults are considering leaving their community or state as a result of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. A different survey by the U.S. Transgender Survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality, found that 47% of trans people are considering leaving their state over such legislation.
