Abstract

Introduction: The introduction and passing of restrictive and protective transgender-specific state policies has increased over the past decade. These policies are critical for the health of transgender and other gender diverse (TGGD) people; however, little is known about the relationship between these policies and healthcare use, and the role that race/ethnicity plays in this relationship.
