The survey conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality, which included over 92,000 binary and nonbinary transgender people, provides valuable insights into the lives of transgender individuals.

One of the key findings of the survey is that nearly all respondents, 94%, reported being satisfied with their lives after transitioning.

For individuals like Holmes, a 39-year-old Black transgender man, these statistics are not just numbers but a validation of their lived experiences.

She believes that the survey results are crucial in providing much-needed validation for transgender individuals and countering the misinformation that has surrounded the transgender community.

Overall, the survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality sheds light on the experiences and perspectives of transgender individuals, highlighting the importance of affirmation and recognition in their lives.
