Nature and Context

Transgender Americans suffer from higher rates of unemployment, homelessness, and discrimination than others in the LGBTQ+ community, and they face violence and racism. This is especially true for Black Trans women.

Symptoms and Causes

Fatal violence disproportionately affects transgender women of color, and that the intersections of racism, sexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and unchecked access to guns conspire to deprive them of employment, housing, healthcare and other necessities, barriers that make them vulnerable. Mainstream media seems unable or unwilling to cover these cases of abuse, violence, and sometimes murder, meaning they sometimes don't receive the justice they deserve.
