The Movement Advancement Project (MAP)’s 2017 report, A Closer Look: Bisexual Transgender People, analyzed data from the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey to learn more about the bisexual+ transgender community. They found that the majority of transgender individuals identify as bisexual+: “One-third of respondents to the survey (32%) identified as bisexual or pansexual, compared to 16% who identified as lesbian or gay, 21% who identified as queer, and 15% who identified as heterosexual.”

MAP also discovered that younger people were more likely to identify as bisexual or pansexual: “36% of transgender people ages 18-24 identified as bisexual or pansexual, compared to 31% of people ages 25-44, 31% of people ages 45-64, and 26% of people ages 65 and older.”

As part of #BiWeek, GLAAD profiled seven up and coming advocates who are proud of their bi+ and transgender/non-binary identities—and already changing the world.
