HRT Microgrants & FOLX Health

In 2021, Trans Lifeline teamed up with FOLX Health to provide 100 microgrants for at least one year of free or reduced HRT through our HRT Care Fund. As a result, we raised and distributed more than $100,000 to trans folks across the country who were able to initiate and/or sustain gender-affirming medical care via FOLX HRT services.

It was important to us to partner with a company equally committed to our shared mission to alleviate financial barriers for trans folks through economic redistribution strategies.

Thank you to everyone who gave to support these microgrants!

Gender-Affirming Hair Removal Microgrants

In 2022, Trans Lifeline offered a Gender Affirming Hair Removal microgrant to make it easier for our siblings who experience transmisogyny—and especially those who experience transmigynoir—to access the care they need.

Each microgrant recipient was selected through a lottery system and received $1,500 towards the cost of their permanent hair removal treatment.

2021 Until We’re All Free: Holiday Commissary Fundraiser

THANK YOU! Because of your generous donations to our 2021 Until We’re All Free Holiday Commissary Campaign, we gave $120,000 to help trans people in prison or ICE detention. Our six amazing partners distributed these funds as direct bail or commissary support.

We are grateful for our caring community that believes a world without prisons and cages is possible. We’ll keep working towards that world until we’re all free.
