🇨🇦 Canada becomes the first country to provide census data on transgender and nonbinary people – and it lets us make some more educated estimates of how many of us are there in the world 😉

@PronounsPage I have no reason to affirm this, but it just makes sense to me that the proportion between transgender men, women and non-binary people is roughly 1:1:1.

Now, thinking on future estimations, I guess a way to rig that might be to mix the data on various countries but using "acceptance events" as common time marks. Obviously, this assumes a linear progress, but might be good enough for estimations.
