Support our groundbreaking project by and for
trans people living with HIV
We launched Positively Trans (T+) at TLC to respond to the routine violence and discrimination experienced by trans and gender nonconforming people living with HIV, particularly trans women of color. Positively Trans is a project led by its members, all trans people living with HIV, mostly people of color.
Since 2015, we've been mobilizing and promoting resilience through community-driven research, advocacy, and leadership development. Our members—fierce, visionary leaders from all across the country—are working to represent hundreds of thousands more who have been left behind in the broader HIV/AIDS movement.
Positively Trans is transforming the health and well-being of our communities.
This Give OUT Day, we've set a goal of raising $10,000 for Positively Trans.
Help us sustain and grow this project.
The violence faced by trans people can be even more intense for those living with HIV: Routine discrimination in housing and employment, as well as targeted abuse from law enforcement, means many are without consistent access to healthcare. Black trans women are especially vulnerable to situations that put them at high risk of contracting HIV in the first place, and are at high risk of never receiving the necessary care.
We believe in supporting the leadership of those most impacted by the systems we fight. In 2019, Positively Trans will continue to dismantle harmful policies and combat stigma, with specific focus on Black communities in the South and Midwest—sharing stories, our research data, and tools for promoting awareness.
We hope you'll donate today to join our impact, and share with friends, family, and followers why you give to Positively Trans at TLC. Your words and actions as a supporter are powerful!
