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!
