Trans Lifeline Profile Information

  • The world is a lot. We feel grief around the continued losses of siblings that should be here. We feel the uncertainty, lack of adequate care, resources, & racial equity around COVID right now. And also, the leadership of Black trans women is shifting international conversations about police, prisons, race, and gender in our country, and we feel that power.
.
.
There is another trans person here to talk to you if need support. If you’re a Black activist who’s exhausted, call us. If you need to process, call us. If you need resources for dealing with arrests, call us. If you need mutual aid funds, call us. We’re experiencing these things too, and we’re collecting the resources being built within our own communities to share with you.

  • When we say defend Black trans lives, what we mean is stand up for community support by our peers for our peers, housing, delicious meals, care, time and space to be together, medicine, more care, access to systems like schools & IDs, healing justice, fresh air, trees, music, peers, art, love, knowledge of our histories, poetry, the ocean, pretty things, honoring each other’s gifts, clothes that make you feel great, surgery & aftercare, comfort, and getting $$$$$.
.
.
We mean defunding police, abolishing prisons, and ICE. We mean we love you and you are precious and deserve love and safety and all of the above.
.
.
We grieve with our community that this is still not happening, that we lost 6 more beautiful sisters in the past few days. Call us if you need support, or if you want support caring for a trans person you love.

  • ¡Nuestra extensión en español está en vivo hoy! Ahora, cuando nos llame, podrá elegir entre inglés y español antes de conectarse con un compañero trans que hable su idioma. El mismo número, los mismos servicios de apoyo de pares y de crisis.

Our Spanish extension is live today! Now when you call us, you'll be able to choose between English & Spanish before you're connected with a trans peer who speaks that language. Same number, same peer and crisis support services.

  • Three of our Microgrant recipients share what changing their name and gender marker on your ID means for them, with @mtv .

Our partnership with @mtv & @logotv - with help from ⚡️@kimpetras ⚡️- ensures that 20 of our grants each month go to trans youth. As part of our equity policy, 75% of our grants go to #BIPOC trans people. Economic justice is trans justice. Racial justice is trans justice.

  • We are LIVE for #StonewallDay at @prideliveofficial & @logotv! 
Watch along: Link in bio.

We wish you a powerful queer liberation and Pride season -- a season that would not exist without the vision and work of Black and Latinx trans women.

We stand on the backs of those who came before us and those who make our work sustainable today. As a beneficiary of Pride Live's Stonewall Day, we are clear about who carried us forward to a day where US Presidents & pop stars raise money for trans prison abolitionists who are divested from the police. Watch along with us all day today!

Text REBEL to 324725 to donate!

  • Our incredible partners at @mtv @logotv & @plus1vote worked with us this election year to create a youth Microgrants program! .
.
Each month, we make sure that at least 20 grantees are young people - because young people often face more barriers to self determination, and are being politically targeted in schools, sports, healthcare, and conversion therapy. .
.
As part of our racial equity policy, we also ensure that 75% of grantees each month come from Black, Indigenous, people of color communities.
