Organizations Who Support The Transgender Community

On behalf of the entire Transgender community, I would like to thank these organizations for their efforts to improve the lives of Transgender humans. We all want equal rights just like everyone else. We want to be able to work, have a home, get medical care and live a fulfilling life.

The Transgender community is here to stay and even though there are some out there who would deny us our right to even exist, we are not going away.

Thank you!

National Gay and Lesbian Task Force: “Transgender people and issues are core to our work at the Task Force.”

Human Rights Campaign: “HRC works to educate the public on issues that transgender people face, from widespread discrimination and hate violence, to the complex process of getting appropriate identity documents, to finding culturally competent healthcare providers, and family and parenting issues, and to advocate for their full inclusion and equality.”

National Center for Lesbian Rights: “NCLR is proud to have been the first LGBT legal organization to launch a Transgender Law Project, which later became an organization in its own right, the Transgender Law Center. Today, we are a national leader in shaping transgender law, and our Legal Director, Shannon Minter, is recognized as a leading architect and visionary of the transgender rights movement.”

Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays: “For decades, PFLAG has been proud to be a resource for transgender and gender non-conforming people, their families and friends.”
