MTV’s IO Tillet Wright and Nev Schulman describe how Americans are suffering because of their gender identity, with approximately 700,000 Americans identifying as transgender. Only 19 states prohibit discrimination based on gender identity. Advocates like Sen. Sherrod Brown from Ohio have repeatedly tried to pass laws protecting trans workers from being fired, but they failed to pass.
