The Grapevine: A Southern Trans Report
May 30, 2019
Transgender Law Center and Southerners on New Ground interviewed 135 transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people in the southern U.S. to document their lived experiences. With data from 13 states–West Virginia, Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Missouri, and Kentucky–The Grapevine: A Southern Trans Report is the only community-based survey of TGNC southerners to date. The report offers insight on the issues TGNC Southerners identify as priorities–HIV protections, income equality, incarceration, and more.
