Hear from a few of the youth we serve about how important the Stand with Trans services and support are to them. They are the reason we do what we do. Transgender youth and their families are the primary concern for Stand with Trans. Our programming is youth informed so we can identify what they need and where the gaps are. So many are isolated and lack a strong peer support network; they count the days in between support groups (which serves as a social outlet). Many parents are reeling from the news that they're child is transgender or non-binary or gender non-conforming. Our education events, support groups and annual workshops provide connection, learning, strength and empowerment for all who participate.
When you donate to Stand with Trans, you are helping us to provide the critical programs to trans youth and their families. You are helping us to save lives, one family at a time. Your donation makes it possible for this marginalized group to see hope in their future.
Please give to Stand with Trans. Together we are changing the world.

Ally Moms Expansion
Ally Moms is expanding. Now currently in nearly 40 states, we plan to have Ally Moms in all 50 United States of America. The program is “love at the other end of the phone” for trans youth and parents who have no one else to talk with. This amazing support system is FREE to access. Want to chat? Find an Ally Mom here.
Stand with Trans has support groups for trans youth and parents of trans individuals as well as a couple of play groups for young gender expansive children. Facilitators are trained by Stand with Trans to run the group and have a working knowledge of the various issues facing families in the midst of transition. For a schedule, click here.

You can make a difference in the life of a transgender youth.
Our goal is to help transgender and gender variant youth find their voice so they can transition successfully and live authentically without mental health struggles due to any stigma from family, friends or community that might be associated with coming out as transgender.
