This time of year can be especially hard for trans, non-binary and queer folks.
This is a friendly reminder that the term ally is a verb and requires taking action.One way to be an ally is to consider where you donate your time or money during the holidays.
Don’t give to organizations that promote hate and don’t honor the beautiful diversity of humanity.
When giving consider direct aid requests instead of donating to big organizations.
That way the money you give goes directly to those in need and nothing goes to administration of the organization.
Other giving options:
Go Fund Me has a whole section dedicated to trans and non-binary folks trying to raise money for transition related care.
