ezs note:  Upon reading this article, I immediately emailed Rep. Gilchrest to urge such a study in Connecticut.  I will let you know how it goes.  In the meantime, if you are transgender, or know someone who is, and they are exploited, urge them to TELL SOMEONE in authority.  Thanks.

ezs note:  Here's one small way you can make a big difference in your town or city.  Find out when the library board meets in your town or city - then attend.  If for some reason board members seem squeamish about listing certain types of books, ask them why.  Attend early, and often.
