Efforts to inform public knowledge and attitudes about transgender people and their rights rely on a full understanding of what Americans know and think about transgender issues, as well as the underlying values, experiences and beliefs that shape these views. While there have been numerous investigations into attitudes toward gay and lesbian individuals and their rights, in-depth, rigorous research focused specifically on views of transgender issues is sparse, or narrow in scope. To address this need, Borealis Philanthropy partnered with leading LGBT rights funders to support the development and implementation of a methodologically sound national survey assessing broader understandings of transgender identity, feelings toward transgender people, and support for their rights. Conducted in late 2017, the result of the research was the creation of the first-ever Transgender Acceptance Index (TAI), a robust tool to measure attitudes overall and among specific groups and to track them over time. This session will be the first unveiling of the findings and TAI and will include opportunities to engage on the strategic use of this tool in the movement to secure dignity and rights for transgender people.
