New Transgender Identity Study Released

Ann Northrop and Andy Humm of Gay USA comment on a new and fascinating study on transgender identity.

Researchers from the University of Washington found that trans children show a preference for gender stereotyped preferences, of the gender they identify, as much as cis-gender children.

Participants in the study ranged from 3 years of age to 12. They had all transitioned pronouns and in some cases, first names. They were asked questions about toys, clothes, and friends. "The transgender children showed, on average, strong preferences and behaviors associated with their current gender, just as the cisgender children with whom they were compared."

Gay USA, the longest-running LGBT news show in history, offers comprehensive news and analysis by and about the LGBTQ community. The program features lively repartee between hosts Ann Northrop and Andy Humm, as well as interviews with special guests. Our goal each week is to keep our viewers up-to-date on the latest developments in the LGBTQ+ community in the United States and abroad.  With decades of experience in journalism and activism, we work diligently to provide historical context for the stories we cover. We strongly believe in LGBT liberation, but we aim to be fair to those who oppose us. Gay USA works to provide a critical perspective on the groups within our movements working to change things.
