Support trans liberation! Donate $10 to Trans Law Center for #GiveOutDay! https://shar.es/1Z0Pme

You have the power to create a better reality and build a better future for trans and gender nonconforming people across the country.

For the past three years hundreds of people, like you, opened their hearts and made a $10 donation which added up to thousands of dollars to help the Transgender Law Center secure significant prize grants and raise critical financial support to expand our work.

Your Give OUT Day donation will:

1) bring more skill-based trainings to educate local trans leaders in the states facing anti-trans legislation and ballot initiatives such as Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington State.

2) increase public awareness and understanding of the lives and struggles of trans youth leaders and their supportive families by creating powerful and compelling videos that tell their stories, thereby changing attitudes and building empathy for the challenges trans youth face.

TRUTH: Meet Zeam from TRUTH

3) continue pushing Positively Trans’ groundbreaking work of centering the voices, needs, and leadership of our trans and gender nonconforming community members living with HIV/AIDS so that they can drive advocacy and prevention efforts locally and nationally.

4) educate government officials about the specific needs of trans women in immigration detention facilities, many of whom are placed with men and experience extraordinary violence and discrimination at the hands of other detainees or detention officers.

Thank you for your support of Transgender Law Center. You are making a real difference in so many people’s lives. Additionally, we are splitting any national Give OUT day prize grants we receive 50/50 with SONG. Consider the fact that the South receives less than 3% of LGBTQ funding nationally and think about how impactful your support could be. Give an extra $10 to our partner SONG if you’ve got an extra $10 to give: click here. 

Enigmatic new Los Angeles artist wens makes a riveting emergence on Bones, a song that fully lives up to the “dark and stormy” description she’s included in her twitter bio. Bones is an unyielding wall of cascading alt and electro pop. wens’ vocals are fiery and intense, imprisoning me in ferocious, unwavering beauty. Bones is turbulent and thunderous, leaving me madly intrigued and longing to learn more about this striking songstress.
