Brief Summary

Report into transgender and gender variant people who have run for and/or been elected to public office around the world, including the UK.

Extract from document

The field of transgender politics is still emerging. This report is intended as an early step toward a vibrant field of inquiry and scholarship. While we begin to address some important questions about transgender representation in formal institutions, there are many more questions that will warrant careful attention, both within and beyond this specific context. We hope to be of service in laying a foundation for more work on transgender politics and supporting a diversity of approaches and methods. In this first report, we examine:

Who is running for office and who has been elected?

What is the pool of transgender people running for office? While we cannot say whether this group is representative of the broader transgender population, we can report on the demographics of the individuals who have entered the candidate pool. Who among these candidates actually succeeds in winning election?
