Within the medical community, #transgender individuals face significant barriers to health care. The consequences of inadequate treatment are staggering. 54% of transgender youth have attempted #suicide. More than 50% of persons identified as transgender have used injected #hormones that were obtained illegally or used outside of conventional medical settings. Additionally, such individuals frequently resort to the dangerous use of self-administered #silicone injections.
