In a recent study, UCLA researchers found transgender adults are more racially and ethnically diverse in comparison to the general United States population.

The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, which published the study in October, also found that transgender adults who identified with a certain race were significantly more likely to live in communities with a high proportion of individuals of the same race.

Taylor Brown, a co-author of the report and a policy analyst at the Williams Institute, said the study is the first to comprehensively assess racial trends in the U.S. transgender population.

“That this was the first study of its kind really speaks to how new this research is,” Brown said. “This sets the baseline for future research.”
He said he and his collaborators combined the results from the BRFSS and data from the U.S. Census to assess the race and ethnicity of transgender adults, as well as their location.

He added that the researchers do not know why transgender populations exhibit disproportionate racial and ethnic diversity.
Well for one thing I don’t find it unusual for us to be “more likely to live in communities with a high proportion of individuals of the same race” because segregation and discrimination of races still exists.

As for the trans community being more diverse I don’t find that unusual either because so far they haven’t found any genetic component to gender dysphoria and this data suggests that there isn’t any. Also I think the data also that GD is not socioeconomic or cultural depend since it is racially and ethnically diverse.
