This national survey investigating the status of China’s transgender and gender-nonconforming population was officially released on November 20, the Transgender Day of Remembrance, in Beijing. Launched by Beijing LGBT Center, a Beijing based civil association, and the sociology department of Peking University, with the support of the Dutch Embassy, this survey represents the largest quantitative research on transgender people in China, with a national database of 2,060 valid questionnaires.

Aiming to raise the visibility of the trans community and to fight against discrimination, the survey reveals comprehensive figures on the difficult conditions faced by transgender men, transgender women, genderqueer people and cross-dressers, ringing an alarm for the promotion and improvement of trans rights in China.
