Drawing from a 27-state subsample of the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), I evaluate the association between gender identity and self-rated health between cisgender, transgender, and gender non-conforming groups. Because policies and socioeconomic factors vary widely across states, this study employs multilevel logistic estimation to account for variation among individuals within states. The analysis finds distinct health disparities between gender identity groups, with gender non-conforming individuals reporting the highest odds for poor health, followed by transgender women, transgender men, cisgender women, and cisgender men, respectively. Most of these differences are explained by a combination of socioeconomic, behavioral, and support network factors. However, the higher odds of poor health among gender-nonconforming respondents persist despite these controls, and may be due to differences in social support similar to those experienced by bisexuals.

While most previous studies examining the effects of sexual orientation on earnings rely on lesbian women, gay men, and their heterosexual counterparts in Western societies, this paper argues that focusing on different stratification processes withinsexual/gender minorities as well as social-institutional structures of a society is indispensable to the study of sexuality stratification. Using the LGBT Workplace Environment Survey 2015, this study explores the association between sexual/gender minority status and income in Japan. The results show that there is a negative association between being a sexual/gender minority and income among both designated females at birth and designated males at birth. The results suggesting the lesbian premium found in Western economies are not observed in Japan. In addition, the findings indicate that the processes through which sexuality stratification operates depend on various categories of sexual/gender minorities such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, and a local transgender category in Japan “X-gender.”
