Some 1.4 million adults identify as transgender in the United States. “Past research suggests marriage is related to greater access to economic, social and psychological resources, and we believe access to such resources helps transgender people combat life stressors related to their gender-minority status, including discrimination,” said Hui Liu, MSU professor of sociology and principal investigator of the federally funded study.
