Is your group trans-led?

What does trans-led mean?

Trans-led means that the majority of the people in charge of your group identify as trans or gender non-conforming.

What do we mean by “in charge”?

• If you have a director, your director should identify as trans or gender non-conforming.
• If you have a board, a collective, or an advisory committee, the majority of staff, collective or committee members should identify as trans or gender non-conforming.
• If you have a staff, the majority of staff members should identify as trans or gender non-conforming.
• If you are volunteer-run, the majority of your volunteer leaders should identify as trans or gender non-conforming.

If your group has a trans-related program that includes trans or gender non-conforming leadership, but the majority of your organization’s leadership (director, staff, board, etc) do not identify as trans or gender non-conforming, your group is not trans-led.

There are hundreds of grassroots groups across the country that are trans-led. We want to make sure that TJFP’s grant money goes directly to supporting them!
