ezs note:  This is the report we've been waiting for.  Awhile back, I filled out the survey, and urged others to do the same.  Now, the US Transgender Survey is out.  In its long form, it's a long read, but in my humble opinion, this is one of most important documents you'll ever read.  For those more comfortable with Spanish, a shorter document is available.

In other words, read it!

ezs note:  Geez - this MUST stop!  Here are some things we can ALL do to make our lives happier:  1)  Especially if you live in one of the cities or towns where a city or town has occurred,  be on the lookout!  Don't date total strangers.  If at all possible, walk home with a TRUSTED friend.  If this is impossible, make your route a well-lighted one.  2)  If you live in a city or town where an incident has occurred, or you travel through such an area, and you know information, please call!  3)  For the most part, priests, ministers, and rabbis are your friends.  Ask them nicely to defuse any violent action by firmly denouncing such activities.
