Transgender College Freshmen Drink More, Experience More Blackouts

A survey of more than 422,000 college freshmen found that students who identified as transgender were more likely than their cisgender peers to experience negative consequences from drinking, including memory blackouts, academic problems and conflicts such as arguments or physical fights.

Transgender College Students May Use Alcohol as a Coping Mechanism

Although college can be demanding for young adults, it may be particularly so for transgender students struggling with identity-formation and other emotional, social, and developmental challenges. Prior research suggests that transgender students may experience greater drinking and negative alcohol-related consequences than their cisgender peers (i.e., those whose gender matches their sex at birth). This study examined levels of drinking, frequency of blackouts and other alcohol-related consequences, and drinking motivations among transgender college students.

New study measuring attitudes on transgender rights issues finds significant support for protection of general civil rights for transgender people, but public opinion is more divided on policies that relate to the body and gender roles, such as people being able to choose which public restroom to use based on one's gender identity or the ability to change one's sex on a state-issued driver's license.

Birmingham Researchers Pioneer LGBTQ Inclusivity in Higher Education

Researchers at the University of Birmingham have published recommendations for best practice on LGBTQ- inclusivity in the higher education curriculum - based on the results of an extensive survey into the experiences of both LGBTQ and straight cisgender students and staff on campus. Students were asked about a range of issues, including their levels of comfort in different university environments, such as halls, sports, and teaching areas. The study also looked at their experiences, positive and negative, such as experiencing abusive behaviour.

WashU Expert: Bathroom Is Source of Trauma for Transgender People

A vast amount of evidence shows that bathrooms are often the site of abuse and trauma against transgender people, not the other way around, says an expert on transgender aging at Washington University in St. Louis.With Missouri considering legislation to become the latest state to pass a “bathroom bill” and President Trump rescinding rules on bathrooms for transgender students, the health of transgender people is at stake, said Vanessa Fabbre, assistant professor at the Brown School, whose research explores the conditions under which LGBTQ people age well.
