Prevalence of HIV testing among black and white transgender adults, 2016–2019


Fifteen percent of transgender people were tested for HIV in the past year from 2016 to 2019, compared with nearly a quarter of S.M. cisgender men and 10 percent of cisgender heterosexual men and women. Twenty-two percent of black and 13 percent of white transgender people, and 31 percent of black and 21 percent of white S.M. cisgender men were tested for HIV in the past year. An estimated 18–19 percent of black heterosexual cisgender men and women had a test for HIV in the past year compared with 7 percent of their white comparators
