Trans Visibility Matters

The Takeaway: More Americans Know and Accept Transgender People

Results from a new national survey commissioned by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nationís largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, reveal a significant uptick in the number of Americans who say they personally know or work with someone who is transgender, and a corresponding increase in favorable feelings toward transgender people.

The data, collected for HRC by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, shows that 22 percent of likely voters surveyed reported that they personally know or work with a transgender person, up from 17 percent who said they did in a similar poll last year. And knowing a transgender person translates powerfully into positive impressions: 66 percent of those who said they know a transgender person expressed favorable feelings toward them, compared with 13 percent who did not -- a net favorability of 53 percentage points.

1. That's why the dark side wants to keep them in the closet.

My family and friends are long out.

They won't go back.
