Línea directa in español
La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio telefónico de apoyo dirigido por personas transgénero para las personas transgénero y/o que están cuestionando su género. Creemos que el mejor apoyo que las personas Trans pueden recibir es el de los miembros de la comunidad Trans con experiencias de vida compartidas.
Llámanos si necesitas a alguien Trans con quien hablar, incluso si no estás en crisis o no sabes con certeza si eres transgénero.
Marca al (877) 565-8860 en los Estados Unidos o al (877) 330-6366 en Canadá y oprime el #2 para conectarte con operadorxs que hablan español.
Calling is Courageous
Here’s what we want you to know:
- We don’t define what a crisis is and isn’t, and you don’t need to be in a crisis to call.
- Call us for any reason. You deserve support.
- Your call will be answered by a trans person.
- There’s nothing you have to say or any intake questions you’ll have to answer. We can just talk to you, or we can just listen.
- If you experience vocal dysphoria, we won’t assume your gender identity.
- You won’t be asked for any identifying information.
- We do not call any emergency services or otherwise break your confidentiality without your explicit request.
Trans Lifeline respects your gender identity, and we will provide you with support without judgment. We do not expect you to disclose specifics about your gender identity, transition, or pronouns. Still, we may ask questions about your needs to help connect you with the best possible resources.
All callers are treated with respect, regardless of age, nationality, race/ethnicity, religion, orientation, socioeconomic status, immigration status, mental or physical ability, or body type, including intersex status. We won’t judge you for your experiences, history, background, identity, where you are in your transition, if/how you choose to transition, or anything you choose or need to do to survive.
All of our operators are trans-identified, but we cannot guarantee that you will be able to speak to a specific individual or a person of a particular identity. But we will do our best to provide you with the support you need.
Our operators are here to provide peer support to trans and questioning callers. Trans Lifeline is committed to combating racism, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, xenophobia, ableism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, classism, and other oppressive structures.
As a rule, operators will not share personal contact information with callers in order to preserve confidentiality.
Different operators may have different boundaries regarding self-disclosure and conversation topics. Both callers and operators have the right to set boundaries around how much information to share about themselves and what topics they are comfortable discussing.
Both callers and operators have the right to end a call when needed.
Trans Lifeline does not tolerate callers using the line for sexual gratification or to prank, harass, or verbally abuse operators. Any caller who abuses the line may be blocked from calling again. The same applies to callers making bigoted commentary or looking to debate issues affecting our communities. Blocks cannot be appealed. Telephone harassment is a prosecutable offense.
While we have a strict policy against non-consensual active rescue, we reserve the right to report any call containing credible threats of violence to others and to comply with laws regarding suspected child abuse and neglect. See a description of state laws here.
Veronica (she/her), Hotline Operator
I bring the perspective of someone who transitioned later in life. I love it when I have the privilege of being the first trans person a caller has spoken to. I want to give trans people the tools to find and build community in their own area.
Karleigh (she/her), Hotline Operator
I want to go beyond the nuts and bolts to find out what drives you, what do you like to do, what do you enjoy. We have to define our lives beyond HRT and surgeries, we have to keep our passions and our focus as whole human beings.
