The State of Black Transgender Health

7/18/2024

Presenter: J. Coley Alston (Xe/They)

As of May 2024, over 550 anti-trans bills have been introduced to prevent transgender Americans from having access to services, legal recognition, and the right to publically exist. The health disparities of Black transgender Americans are fueled by racism, transantagonism, family rejection, and systemic inequalities. The greatest threats to Black transgender health are homelessness, suicidality, loneliness & isolation, and violence.

In addition to understanding the state of Black transgender health, we will explore protective health facilitators for individuals and organizations to adopt.
