Happy Pride! The Pew Research Center released new findings regarding gender identity and Americans. Notably, that 44% of Americans now say they know at least one trans person, and more than 5% of adults in the United States under the age of 30 identify as transgender or nonbinary. 20% of respondents say they know someone who identifies as nonbinary.
Numbers are higher among younger adults, half of whom say they know a trans individual. While research of this nature has been done before, it is greatly suspected that trans individuals have been underreported and underrepresented.
