Oregon’s Trans and Nonbinary Youth Struggle to Access Medical Care, New OHSU Report Finds

Transgender and nonbinary young people in Oregon still face significant obstacles to accessing proper medical care, according to a new report from Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU).

The report, which is based on a survey of 194 trans and nonbinary people from across the state ranging in age from 13 to 21, found that the majority of respondents had not received any kind of trans-specific medical care. It also found that about a quarter of them have families that are “rarely” or “never” supportive or understanding of their gender identities.
