No Wonder: D.C. Has Highest Transgender Identification Rate in Nation

I think this explains the Libs fixation on pushing transgender issues.
  They think D.C. bubble is representative of the whole country. 

CNS News reports Washington, D.C. has the highest rate of transgender-identifying residents in the country, according to a recently released study by the The Williams Institute, which is associated with the University of California/Los Angeles School of Law.

Of the estimated 1.4 million transgender-identifying individuals in the United States, about 14,550 - or 2.77 percent of the total - reside in D.C., according to the think tank, which specializes in “sexual orientation and gender identity law”.

The District of Columbia “had a notably high percentage of transgender-identified adults (2.8%) and is considered an outlier due to its unique geographic (urban) and demographic profile,” according to the study findings’ endnotes.

D.C. is also the only jurisdiction where the number of individuals who identify as transgender exceeds one percent of the population.

But since D.C. is not a state, it remains an outlier. Among the 50 states, Hawaii has the highest per capita percentage of transgender-identifying residents (0.78 percent) with 8,450 individuals.
