    The UCLA School of Law's Williams Institute published a study Friday estimating there are 1.6 million transgender people 13 and older in the U.S.
    The study found that 1.4% of 13- to 17-year-olds and 1.3% of 18- to 24-year-olds identify as transgender; five years ago, both of those numbers stood at 0.7%
    Overall, the Williams Institute found that the percentage of adults who identify as transgender has remained steady at 0.6% since its last report in 2017

    The UCLA School of Law's Williams Institute, a think tank that conducts research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy, published a study Friday estimating there are 1.6 million transgender people 13 and older in the U.S.

    The analysis is based on health survey data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 2017 to 2020 as well as statistical modeling.

    Overall, the Williams Institute found that the percentage of adults who identify as transgender has remained steady at 0.6% since its last report in 2017, but there has been a sharp rise in transgender people ages 13 to 24.

    The study found that 1.4% of 13- to 17-year-olds and 1.3% of 18- to 24-year-olds identify as transgender. Five years ago, both of those numbers stood at 0.7%. Together, the two groups are estimated to account for nearly 700,000 people.

    Jody Herman, the paper’s lead author, told Spectrum News there are several reasons for the jump in the youth transgender population estimate, including that the CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey began asking high school students in 2017 if they are transgender, giving researchers a clearer picture.

    Herman, a senior scholar of public policy, said other factors likely include shifting populations, greater awareness and education about trans people and gender identities, and increased social media that allows young people to connect with people they relate to.

    “I think it's a combination of things,” she said. “And we should be suspect of pointing at one thing.”...

    Scottsdale Unified School District Records Raise Questions About Hormone Therapy For Students
    June 19, 2022 ADI Staff Reporter

    Scottsdale Unified School District has several controversial Genders Sexuality Alliance clubs on its middle and high school campuses. As reported in the Arizona Daily Independent, there is evidence of the district’s social workers using the Untiown Club as a cover for sexualized programming.

    Now, a recent public records request to the district has resulted in disclosure of a blank patient intake form for a local hormone and gender transition facility located in the Phoenix area. The purpose of the document is yet unknown, and questions about the form to SUSD Superintendent Scott Menzel and members of the school board have gone unanswered.

    The documents received by a parent in response to their public records request included the patient registration form for Identity Hormones, a Phoenix-based firm that claims to “understand the fluidity of gender and hormones.” The form was obtained in response to a request for official SUSD communications for Michelle Schulke, the librarian and Genders Sexuality Club teacher at Desert Mountain High School...
