Surprise! The numbers don’t lie!
I came across this image, which is from a presentation by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, through my friend Annetta Gaiman. The image is simple, yet it’s a real head-turner. The map on the left shows the location of data points for a transgender discrimination survey. On the right is a population density map of the US.
No more debating; it’s settled. Anyone who thinks trans people are all frivolous richies with kooky therapists, aliens from another planet, or San Franciscans: it’s time to give up the stereotypes. Where you find any people, you will find trans people.
You can view the slides from the AIDS Foundation presentation here (contains some cissexist slurs).
