Wonder how it compares with the Lesbian and Gaymale community (probably worse than the Lesbian and Gaymale community).  Just would like to see the numbers for the Lesbian and Gaymale community, as well as Straight community.  Really resonated with this, even though I am a cisgender Lesbian.

I don't believe suicide is talked about enough. I was happy that transgender people who died by their own hand were remembered at transgender day of remembrance services. Since marriage equality has become the law of the land  a number of lgbt organizations have curtailed or ceased operations. Once again transgender folks have been left behind.

Just as the survey showed the U.S. average in the "Psychological Distress/Suicide" category, it would be nice to see averages in the "Harassment and Abuse" and the "Housing, Employment and Poverty" categories, as I'm willing to bet those are very much above the U.S. average.
