Transgender Awareness Week bring positive awareness to the community
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - All this week is Transgender Awareness Week is bringing positive awareness to the community.
1.6 million Americans identify as transgender.
This year, at least 15 states have either restricted access to gender-affirming care or taken up legislation that would do so.
A recent survey by the Trevor Project indicates that 93% of trans and non-binary youths worry about being denied access to care. The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association point to studies that show transgender children who get hormone therapy have a lessened risk of self-harm.
