(GAEF) GENDER-AFFIRMING ESSENTIAL FUND
There's a gap in essentials that trans and gender-expansive folxs need in order to decrease mental health issues that insurance doesn't cover. However, being a For-Trans-By-Trans organization, we get it. We understand the struggle and urgent need to have certain gender-affirming items in order to experience psychological- safety. This includes feeling comfortable, safe, and affirmed in your identity.
That is why we created the Gender-Affirmation Essential Fund.
Through our partners, donations, and sponsors we are able to provide at-risk individuals essential elements of their transition. These items are granted without judgment or scrutiny in order to promote positive mental health within our community.
Our Fund and Resource Bank's #1 Goal is to decrease the average number of suicide attempts of the Trans+ community due to experiencing helplessness and lack of support.
Donate today to protect the psychological safety of an at-risk community member.
