(BREITBART) – A recent survey found that transgender adults experience depression or anxiety even after transitioning into their preferred gender.
The recent KFF/Washington Post poll found that transgender adults reported a higher level of depression and anxiety compared to non-transgender adults surveyed in the past year. “More than four in ten trans adults report feeling anxious (56%), depressed (48%), or lonely (44%), either always or often in the past 12 months,” it said.

“The share of trans adults who report these feelings in the past year is larger than the share of cisgender adults (31% report feeling anxious, 21% depressed, and 21% lonely). Trans adults are also less likely than their cisgender counterparts to report feeling happy (40% compared to 59%) or hopeful (29% compared to 50%) always or often over the past 12 months,” it added.
