A Letter To Our Community From Our New Interim Executive Director, Taegen Meyer

Dear Trans Lifeline Community, It is an honor to serve you as Interim Executive Director through this transition period of growth and change. I deeply cherish this opportunity to shape the change that is happening within Trans Lifeline as an organization and within trans communities more broadly. With my background as an LA based organizer and artist, I am looking to bring creative visioning to how we can structure ourselves internally to continue to provide the support our community needs most. The change that I am shaping us towards as an organization is helping build more equitable trans futures. It is central that the needs and leadership of trans people most marginalized by our society are centered.

If you’re trans, this could be true for more than one of your names.

How to Spot and Remove Apps Installed to Spy on You

Stalkerware, a type of spyware, that enables remote access by a person to monitor the contents of another device, such as a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. This access goes way beyond apps that are developed to find your phone if it is lost or stolen.  And despite some being marketed as parental control apps, they are not just set up to limit what kind of websites or apps a child can visit.  They are used to surveil and control people. For trans folks of any age, these tools can further isolate us.
