MAP's "Snapshot: Transgender in America"

Despite the Supreme Court's recent landmark ruling on same-sex marriage, the push for LGBT civil rights is far from over—especially if we're talking about the "T."

Transgender Americans are still vulnerable to a variety of forms of discrimination in most states, and an LGBT-focused independent thinktank called the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) has compiled a helpful infographic that pinpoints many of these issues. Check out some of the findings below, courtesy of MAP.

Only 19 states (plus D.C.) have laws that protect residents from employment discrimination on the basis of gender identity, MAP found.

Arkansas and Tennessee even have statewide laws that prevent a local non-discrimination law from being passed or enforced.

About three-quarters of transgender students reported that they feel unsafe at school, nearly two-thirds said that they avoid bathrooms entirely, and almost one-fifth said that they've been physically assaulted on campus.
