The numbers: Transgender in America – The Blade:

“It’s difficult to definitively state the number of transgender men and women in the United States. Statistics and surveys vary — in part because not all transgender people are out and/or willing to declare themselves as trans to the government or on forms.”

  1. Australia is holding its census at the moment. I have decided to bypass the MALE response this time. I owe everyone who is different this, and I owe me that much.
    I look forward to each of your posts.

    I came upon two legitimate resources that documented the domestic USA numbers by the end of the 1970s. One published source (Susan’s Place) reported approximately 1000 while the second (Janus Information Facility) reported approximately 3000.

    Okay, not exact, but a worthy effort of long ago.

    Nowadays, let’s all report so the next accounting is as accurate as possible. Too bad if the census-taker reacts badly.
