Just under 3 weeks left to take the U.S. Trans Survey! The U.S. Trans Survey is for all trans people, binary and nonbinary. If you’re trans, take the survey now! Your voice matters.

We have some big news… The U.S. Trans Survey is finally here! After over a year of hard work, we hope this will be the largest survey to ever document the lives of trans people all across the country. By sharing our lived experiences of being transgender in America, we can help shed light on the challenges and strengths of our community.

Your anonymous answers will inform a better future for our community–a world in which trans folks not only survive, but thrive. The survey only takes 60 minutes to complete. By giving your time, you are contributing to a better future for all. ustranssurvey.org

TRIGGER WARNING: Acts of homophobic violence, injury, death

October 6th is the day that we remember Matthew Shepard. On this night in 1998, Matthew was approached by two men who offered to give him a ride home. The two men would then rob and torture Matthew because of his identity as a gay man. He was then left tied to a fence, where he was found many hours later and brought to a hospital, where he passed on October 12th, 1998.

These acts of violence are far more common than believed to be and serve as an important reminder why we must fight bigotry and discrimination in our every day lives.

We wish all of our q***r friends a safe and reflective LGBTQ+ History Month, and wish all of our allies the time, resources, strength, and clarity to continue to fight for change.
