STUDY: Gender Non-Conforming People Face Severe Discrimination

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has released a new report based on its epic study of transgender discrimination that focuses entirely on people who identify as genderqueer or are otherwise gender non-conforming. Simply because these individuals do not identity as specifically men or women, they face incredibly high rates of unemployment (76 percent), physical assault (32 percent), harassment by law enforcement (31 percent), and less frequent access to healthcare (36 percent).
