Do we know how many transgender people there are?

 We do not know how many transgender people there are in Victoria as any numbers will only be based on those seeking to use medical services for making a transition. Such data will always be an underestimate as many transgender people do not access services and are not open about their status because of the stigma and discrimination that may follow.
