TRANSGENDER HEALTH RESOURCE CENTER

1 million adults in the United States identify as transgender or gender non-conforming (TGNC).

2,351 TGNC people were diagnosed with HIV in the United States from 2009 to 2014.

Among the 3.3 million HIV testing events reported to CDC in 2013, the percentage of TGNC people who received a new HIV diagnosis was more than 3 times the national average.

An estimated 22% of transgender women are living with HIV, according to a 2013 report that sampled 2,705 transgender women.

The webinar and resource center are supported in part by education grants from Gilead Sciences, Inc. and Janssen Therapeutics.

Meet Kim Watson

Kim Watson moved to the US from Barbados when she was 23, hoping to escape the abuse and stigma she’d encountered as a young woman of trans experience. Two years later, homeless and engaging in sex work, she was diagnosed with HIV. Now 54, Kim is a proud mother to her eight-year-old daughter and wife to her husband of more than 10 years. She’s living a full, active life with HIV and is sharing her story about how she overcame stigma, found her voice and established a community for herself and other people of trans experience.
