Abstract: Ezra relies on the United States Transgender Survey in addition to qualitative data, case studies, and anecdotal experiences to conduct his research. He emphasizes how transgender Americans experience a lack of access to healthcare across boundaries such as type of insurance, not having insurance, fears of mistreatment and discrimination which lead to healthcare avoidance, and confidentiality issues between transgender youths and their parents and guardians when seeking out forms of preventable healthcare, including but not limited to sexual health and cancers. He then discusses the consequences of not obtaining proper healthcare before providing solutions and suggestions to alleviate this problem.
