Conclusions: This study elucidated the sociodemographic and behavioral risk profile of a sample of TGD youth in the MHS. Military and non-military health care providers across a broad spectrum of specialties should be knowledgeable about the unique psychosocial and medical needs, requisite sensitivity, and available referral options in the care of TGD youth. Assumptions about one's gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, or behaviors cannot be made based on birth-assigned sex. Further research is needed to investigate the health and wellbeing of TGD military-affiliated youth over time and to determine quali...
