Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. differ widely in their views on gender identity and transgender issues. But there are notable differences among Democrats too, especially by race and ethnicity.

Around two-thirds of Black Democrats, 66%, say that whether someone is a man or woman is determined by their sex at birth. By contrast, 72% of White Democrats, 61% of Asian Democrats and 54% of Hispanic Democrats say that someone can be a man or woman even if that is different from their sex at birth. On this question, Black Democrats’ views are closer to those of Republicans than to the views of other Democrats.
