This paper attempts to enhance understanding and communication about different sexual issues. It starts by offering definitions to common terms like sex, gender, gender identity, and sexual identity. Alternate ways to discuss one’s sexual attractions are also presented. Terms are defined or redefined and examples given of their preferred use in different clinical situations including those associated with children. Adherence to the usage
advocated here is proposed as helpful in theory formulation and discussion as well as in clinical practice. When reference is made to individuals of various sexual-minority groups such as transsexual or intersexual persons, the distinctions offered are particularly advocated.

New research from GSA Network and Crossroads Collaborative finds that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, gender nonconforming youth, and youth of color not only face bullying and harassment from peers, but also harsh and disparate discipline from school staff, relatively higher levels of policing and surveillance, and blame for their own victimization. Based on these findings, Advancement Project and GSA Network make the following recommendations
for youth, teachers, school administrators, and policy makers.

Data sources that describe the race and ethnicity of adults who identify as transgender in the United States are
limited. National population-based surveys, like the American Community Survey, are the best sources to provide
generalizable findings on the demographics of U.S. residents. Yet, these surveys have rarely included measures of
gender identity that would allow researchers to identify transgender respondents. Therefore, there is limited
information on the demographics of this population. However, some representative, state-level surveys do collect
this information. In this report, we utilize data from state-level, population-based surveys to estimate the racial and
ethnic composition of adults who identify as transgender in the United States. This report is part of a series of
Williams Institute reports in which we provide new estimates about the size and basic demographic characteristics
of the population of adults who identify as transgender in the U.S. and all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.1

Government policy makers are becoming increasingly interested in the views and
experiences of people who utilize mental health services to inform rights-based and
socially inclusive health and social care initiatives. However, very little information
exists in the available literature about transgender people in this regard. The current
research was part of a larger mixed methods study that used surveys and in-depth
semi-structured interviews. This paper reports on the findings from the interview data
that relate to the unique mental health experiences of the people whom identified as
transgender (n = 4). The data were subject to thematic analysis, and the main themes
that emerged included service experiences, treatment issues, other supports, and hopes
and aspirations. Participants identified challenges and opportunities for enhancing
mental health service provision for transgender people and their families. Some of the
highlighted concerns related to practitioner attributes and relevant psychosocial supports.
Mental health nurses are well placed to use their knowledge and therapeutic
skills to support people who identify as transgender and significant people in their
lives.

Numerous studies have demonstrated the power
of entertainment narratives to influence attitudes and behaviors;
fewer have examined the effects of TV portrayals
on attitudes toward marginalized groups. The present
study is among the first to explore how entertainment
narratives depicting transgender individuals influence
viewers’ attitudes toward transgender people and related
policies. The study examines the impact of exposure to a
TV storyline on Royal Pains (USA Network) and cumulative
effects of viewing other TV series featuring transgender
individuals. An online survey of 488 U.S. viewers
of Royal Pains was conducted (391 had seen the relevant
episode). ANCOVAs revealed exposure to both the Royal
Pains’ storyline and other storylines portraying transgender
individuals were associated with more supportive attitudes
toward transgender people and policies. Mediation
models revealed that for viewers of the Royal Pains’
storyline, the relationships between political ideology
and attitudes toward transgender people and policies were
mediated by identification with the main characters and
the emotion of hope. Disgust mediated viewers’ attitudes
toward transgender people, but not policies. Post hoc
analyses revealed that exposure to transgender narratives
reduced the influence of viewers’ political ideology on
their attitudes. The attitudes of more conservative viewers
became increasingly positive as they saw more media
portrayals of transgender individuals. These findings
highlight the potential for entertainment narratives to influence
attitudes toward marginalized groups, and they
demonstrate the importance of emotion in the context of
divisive topics. Social, political, and public health implications
are discussed.
