OUR WORK MATTERS

TransYOUniting is a mutual aid non-profit providing resources to Pittsburgh's Transgender, LGBTQIA+, and HIV+ Community.

Dedicated services, led by our community, are crucial because:

  • 19% of trans people are or have been homeless.

  • We are twice as likely to be unemployed and 90% of us experience harassment at work.

  • 19% of trans people have been refused medical care because of who we are.

  • 41% of black trans people have been held in a jail cell because of their gender and race.

  • 49% of us have attempted suicide. 80% of us struggle with suicidal ideation. 

  • 22% of black trans people have been physically assaulted trying to access public accommodations
