In light of recent media events negatively portraying transgender children, youth, their families and their medical providers, TransActive needs your support more than ever.

Donate directly to our Youth Expressions projects, In a Bind & About Face, via PayPal!
Encouraged by the ongoing success of our chest binder exchange, In a Bind, we have decided to expand our Youth Expressions programming with a brand new project for trans-feminine youth: About Face!
About Face aims to support and affirm the exploration of gender expression by AMAB (Assigned Male At Birth) transgender and gender diverse youth by providing them with basic makeup kits who may not otherwise be able to obtain them on their own due to social stigma or living in unsupportive environments.
About Face is entirely volunteer-run and depends on donations to function. We receive requests from young people looking for support to relieve dysphoria daily, but can only give out what we receive.
If you have any unused and unopened makeup, including samples and testers, discontinued products, and that weird nail art kit your great aunt Sally sent you for Christmas, donate it to us! We take all unopened makeup and skincare products and find them new homes with deserving youth.
Trans-feminine and nonbinary youth living anywhere in the USA can apply to receive a free makeup kit from our project.
