Supporting our Transgender Brothers and Sisters

Nobody has to tell a transgender person going through transition the financial burden it carries. The clothes make up, personal effects, hair removal and not to mention the medical and psychological needs, most of which is not covered by insurance. As many of us transition, many of us loose our jobs or fail to get the promotions we deserve. The psychological issues we deal with often have a devastating effect effecting on our job performance and or ability to hold a job. Sadly many end up homeless or turn to drugs and prostitution just to survive. Sadly many end up in jail or prison, with sexually transmitted diseases, drug habits and homeless.

Our federal and many of our state governments will not pass the necessary anti-discrimination legislation we need to protect us and our families. Many social service agencies do little or nothing to help us. Many insurance companies deny our claims because they fail to see this as a genuine medical issue. Where can we turn for help?

One thing some of us can do is to start a website. There are many ways in which we can monetize our websites and this is one way in which we can earn a living and support ourselves. I have started a website to help support myself and hopefully one day help me pay for my eventual surgery. I have also included a section build your own website to help my other transgender brothers and sisters. I am committed to helping my transgender brothers and sisters. If there is anything I can do to help my transgender brothers and sisters build, monetize or promote their websites, please feel free to email me anytime and I will do my best to help you.

The thing to remember is we need to support our own. If you see a product or service on a transgender website you can use please do your best to support that website. Help us promote our websites, one way we can do this is to email the links to others whom the website may be of interest. The gays and lesbians have been doing this for years and this has helped them get to where they are today and we need to do the same.
