Over the past year, eight organizations funded through TLI developed and ran community-driven projects to solidify transgender power in our society and respond to the dire affects of the HIV epidemic experienced by transgender communities. In that brief time, our amazing cohort of grantees have accomplished some incredible things.

HIV Hurricane Relief Effort - There's Still Work to be Done

The HIV Hurricane Relief Effort is unique among AIDS United’s grantmaking portfolios. It was our first fund to support rapid-response grantmaking and remains our only initiative to focus exclusively on this kind of grant. It’s also one of our most flexible funds. Grants can be used to support everything from replacing organizations’ roofs and floors to assisting clients with buying new appliances and mattresses, gaining access to transportation, and purchasing children’s school uniforms.

Elevating Trans Voices

My lived experiences got me involved in this work. I faced rejection, discrimination, sexual and physical assault, homelessness, and other bumps in my journey. And some of my experiences I would not wish on anyone, let alone the younger generation. I can't stop any of that from happening and we all will have to come across them. So my plan was to learn a way to help the youth through whatever life can throw at us.

An Ally’s Journey At AIDSWatch

Sitting in those offices, I understood the value of my position as an ally. Though I lost friends to AIDS and have several friends living with HIV, these conditions are not front-and-center in my daily life. I realized that there is a value in legislative staff seeing me, someone who is not living with HIV and whose work does not center around HIV, participating in AIDSWatch. Seeing allies who care enough to haul themselves to a legislative office forces elected and staff to view HIV/AIDS as an issue of importance to people outside the “traditional” groups with a “reason” to care.
