Black Transmen Inc FTM Fund

Men of trans experience are subjected to various steps within society to reveal their individuality or gender expression. To accomplish this, transmen bear the cost of physically transitioning based on the requirements of their state of residence, for which out of pocket costs can exceed $12,000.

In addition to this expense, most transmen endure that there is also the social expense associated with transitioning such as unemployment, underemployment, lack of employment opportunity, employment termination and homelessness. The torment of self hate, ostracized by friends and family, discrimination from co-workers and the general public can become unbearable to men that desire to physically transition but cannot.

We aim to provide resources for transmen to help build a healthy self image and aid in the financial burden of transition cost while providing a rewarding opportunity for transmen to give back to the community. The Black Trans Advocacy FTM Health Fund is an accumulation of donated items and funds utilized to assist transmen who are facing financial hardship and unable to afford the necessities associated with general health and medically transitioning.
