As more and more transgender people share their stories, the public’s understanding of gender identity and expression builds. HRC works to educate the public and provide a range of resources on issues that transgender and gender nonconforming people face—from workplace discrimination, to securing identity documents, to finding culturally competent healthcare, to family and parenting issues, to combating violence—and to advocate for full inclusion and equality.
Trans Visibility Matters
A new survey commissioned by HRC shows a significant uptick in the number of Americans who know someone who is transgender, and a corresponding increase in favorable feelings toward transgender people.
Transgender Children & Youth
HRC is committed to providing the kinds of resources children, families and other youth-serving professionals need to support one another in their journeys.
Understanding the Trans Community
Transgender people come from all walks of life. We are dads and moms, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. We are your coworkers, and your neighbors. While visibility is increasing we still face discrimination, stigma and inequality.
