Discrimination study results: Devastating numbers for Black transgender people

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT —  The findings: Black transgender people live in extreme proverty,  half have attempted suicide and racial bias are especially devastating for them. In addition the number of black people are affected by HIV in devastating numbers, and face higher abuse by the police and in prison.

These staggering findings come from a new study titled: INJUSTICE AT EVERY TURN: A LOOK AT BLACK RESPONDENTS IN THE NATIONAL TRANSGENDER DISCRIMINATION SURVEY. This study was a result of a partnership with the national Black Justice Coalition, National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
