2015 U.S. Trans Survey

If you identify as trans, genderqueer, or non-binary, please set aside time to complete the 2015 U.S. Trans Survey.

We need your help in getting the most diverse sample yet in order to better understand what our community needs, and how our community has changed over the past few years. Your voice matters, and we’re waiting to hear your story.

If you know a trans person who doesn't have access to the internet help them take the survey. We need to count all trans people not just the ones who have computers.
