Acts of discrimination and aggression based on transphobia are an ongoing problem today in the United States. Transgender youth experience these acts in a variety of ways, and while their responses are sometimes harmful to themselves, they may also respond with resilience and determination. This project is an attempt to show how transgender adults have responded to the hatred they faced in their youth and what resources they believe should be available to help their community deal with hatred against them. This study consists of an analysis of semi-structured retrospective interviews with ten adult transgender individuals exploring their lives as teenagers.
