Abstract

Although there is very little doubt that health disparities among transgender women remain prevalent in the United States, there has been very little research conducted regarding the unique experiences of Black and Latina transgender women. This article uses the Sinners and Victims Social Policy Model to delve into the historical foundations that have created these gaps in equity, while also reviewing current literature focusing on the distinct systemic racial and ethnic oppression of these communities. Results suggest that these historical and intersectional considerations are necessary to inform public policy, health care, and education. Future implications for research are discussed.
