A network of mothers of trans children across the country focused on supporting other trans kids. As Ally Moms, we have lots of love and understanding to go around.  Do you need a friendly ear to just listen? Do you just want to ask a question or say “hello”? It is so important to us that anyone who is transitioning or thinking about coming out has the tools they need. What we can offer is a kind word, a loving, virtual hug, or perhaps a suggestion or two.

Microgrants Application

At Trans Lifeline Microgrants, we see, support, and welcome all varied gender identities and experiences. Where historically and socially many identities are excluded from the trans spectrum, our organization embraces and elevates them, recognizing that each of us share a very unique experience with gender. If you aren’t cisgender, you are eligible and encouraged to apply for our services.  


Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
