As more people come out as trans, debate has grown about the age at which transition treatment should begin. Some fear hormones and puberty-blocking drugs are prescribed too early or hastily, but others say access to them can be life-saving.

Tuesday’s survey by The Trevor Project, an LGBTQ+ advocacy nonprofit, polled almost 35,000 LGBTQ+ people aged between 13 and 24, including nearly 12,000 who identified as trans or non-binary – neither male nor female.

Three-quarters of trans and non-binary youth who wanted but did not have access to cross-sex hormones reported feeling depressed in the prior two weeks, found the survey – conducted in late 2020.
