Trans Lifeline's Peer Support Hotline

Total Calls Answered To Date

About the Hotline

Trans Lifeline’s Hotline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada, and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

Trans Lifeline is a Contact USA-accredited hotline.
