The terms gender dysphoria and gender incongruence
describe a heterogeneous group of individuals who express
dissatisfaction with their anatomic gender and
the wish to have the secondary sexual characteristics
of the opposite sex.1 While not all transgender individuals
suffer gender dysphoria, many do. In recent years,
there have been significant advances in the understanding,
management, and care of transgender persons.
These developments encompass psychological, medical,
and surgical approaches to therapy to help alleviate
gender dysphoria. In addition, social and political
changes over the past 35 years have brought more attention
to this underserved and diverse population. In
fact, in 2010, the World Professional Association for
Transgender Health (WPATH) released a statement
recommending the de-psycho-pathologization of gender
nonconformity, stating that the expression of gender
characteristics, including identities, which are not
stereotypically associated with one’s assigned sex at
birth, is a common and culturally diverse human phenomenon
that should not be judged as inherently pathological
or negative.

The 21st Century workplace in Corporate America has seen a dramatic shift in recent years with respect to the diversity of its employees and of the candidates it seeks to recruit. The creation of an inclusive business atmosphere can influence how a younger generation of workers perceives a company and exemplifies what they value in a competitive market place. The term diversity itself has undergone a broadening of meaning. Once a “code word” for women and minorities in the workforce, or applied to personal aspects such as “race, religion, or creed,” we now know and expect diversity to include “gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.” Each and every day, more companies are recognizing the value of creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace that respects and celebrates the individuality of its employees and their contributions to the success of the enterprise.

Despite this very positive trend, many companies continue to struggle with taking that next step: adopting policy and procedures that support these dimensions of diversity. This is never more apparent than when a transgender or gender-diverse employee decides to live as their authentic self and begins a gender transition in the workplace or when a job applicant discloses they are transgender or gender-diverse.

Sexuality education as pedagogy is often fraught by the perceived need to
balance the informational needs of young people with an investment in notions of
childhood innocence. Nowhere is this perhaps more evident than in sexuality
education that seeks to be inclusive of transgender young people, often resulting
in the failure of such education to address the needs of such students. In an
attempt at addressing the relative dearth of information about what transgender
young people would like to see covered in sexuality education, in this article we
explore transgender young people’s accounts of intimacy and sexual health and
consider what this means for school-based sexuality education. To do this we
analyse discussions of intimacy from the perspectives of transgender young
people as narrated in a sample of YouTube videos. We conclude by advocating
for an approach to sexuality education that largely eschews the gendering of body
parts and gametes, and which instead focuses on function, so as to not only
address the needs of transgender young people (who may find normative
discussions of genitals distressing), but to also provide cisgender young people
with a more inclusive understanding of their own and other people’s bodies and
desires.

This article evaluates a pedagogical intervention designed to reduce the
transphobia of North American undergraduate business students. Participants
were enrolled in an organizational behavior course. They resolved a simulated
dispute between coworkers over accommodating the bathroom choices of a
transgender employee. Answers were classified as demonstrating inclusion,
compliance, or hostility with the inclusive response being the establishment
of gender-neutral restrooms and the hostile response being refusal to accept
the transgender employee’s bathroom choice. In the first year, 194 students
completed the exercise with no advance preparation, while in the second
year, 221 students performed the same task after reading a brief article about
transgender employees. Results suggest that the intervention was effective as
the inclusive response was most popular in the second year even though it had
been least popular in the first year. Complete success was not attained, as one
sixth of the students in the second year chose hostile responses. Implications
for research, teaching, and practice are discussed.odating the bathroom choices of a

Few data sources exist that can be used to describe the demographic characteristics of transgender people in
the United States. Most U.S. demographic data come from national, population-based surveys, like the Decennial
Census and the American Community Survey. National surveys, such as these, have rarely included questions
to identify transgender respondents, leaving large gaps in our knowledge about the size and demographic
composition of the transgender population. Yet, an increasing number of states and localities do collect data
about transgender people. In this report, we utilize data from state-level, population-based surveys to estimate
the proportion of the population that identifies as transgender by age group, starting at age 13. We provide a
new estimate of the percentage of youth (13 to 17) that identifies as transgender (Figure 1). We also provide a new
estimate of the overall age distribution of the transgender population, ages 13 and above. This report is part of a
series of Williams Institute reports in which we provide estimates about the size and demographic characteristics of
those who identify as transgender in the United States.
