Trans*Visible was birthed in 2016, through community conversations between Trans* people who feel excluded, silenced, or misrepresented in current movement spaces. This community assessment pointed to the need for deeper, more intersectional political education trainings, diversified opportunities for Trans* individuals to be seen as “leaders” beyond gender and sexual orientation issues, and increased resources challenging Binarism. For Trans*Visible binarism is defined as the assumption gender exists only as “man” or “woman” and ascribes deviance to gender identities, behaviors, and bodies outside of those categories. While binarism is largely ascribed to gender and sexual orientation we also find binarism showing up in or movement ideologies (e.g. “right” and “left”) and  organizing strategies (“direct action” and “political action”). Trans*Visible seeks counter binarism in all its forms by creating visibility for those living beyond the binaries in their gender, sexual orientation and political ideologies, and organizing strategies.

Trans Justice Funding Proj‍‍‍ect

The Trans Justice Funding Project is a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive. We center the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions. Every penny we raise goes to our grantees with no restrictions and no strings attached because we truly believe in trans leadership.
