Discrimination and Violence

Transgender adults experience higher rates of discrimination and violence than the general population. The survey found that 25% of trans adults faced physical assault due to their gender identity, expression, or sexual orientation, and 64% reported verbal attacks. Discrimination and violence contribute to lower rates of life satisfaction among trans adults.

Supportive Care

Research has shown that gender-affirming care, including top surgery, improves the mental health of trans teens and adolescents. A study published in The Lancet found that the majority of adolescents diagnosed with gender dysphoria continue to seek gender-affirming treatments as they get older. Similarly, research on the quality of life and dysphoria among young trans people after top surgery found that it improves chest dysphoria, gender congruence, and body image.
