Your Donations to TLDEF Hard at Work!


In just the past two weeks, we’ve moved the trajectory of transgender rights closer to justice.

  • On December 8th, the New York City Council passed legislation ending the city’s discriminatory surgery requirement for transgender people seeking to align their birth certificates with their true selves.
  • Three days later, New York State told insurance companies that they have to cover transgender health care on the same terms as other care.
  • And just two days ago, New York acted to remove its Medicaid ban on coverage for transgender health care.

All of these developments will dramatically improve the lives of transgender people.  But we can’t get the job done without you.

Let’s keep moving the arc towards justice.  Please consider a year-end donation of $50, $100, or even $1,000 to keep our work moving forward.  Every donation is important and we count on your support.
