Hey there, friends. Genderbands has an announcement.
We are taking a temporary hiatus from most of our services so we can come back stronger and better equipped to meet the needs of our beloved transgender community. We know this may feel disappointing to some of you, but we are committed to our mission of helping transgender people pay for transition-related costs, and pausing to regroup is a necessary step in continuing our work. Here are a few things you can expect during our hiatus:
Grant applications will open in the Fall of 2023, and the next grant recipients will be announced in 2024.
Our retail store will continue to operate on a limited basis.
We are no longer accepting new applications for our free binder program, but we will do our best to honor all applications we have already received.
Email response time will be slower than typical during the hiatus.
You will still find our table at several events in 2023. Come and say hello!
Thank you all for the love and support you offer to Genderbands as an organization. We couldn’t do what we do without you!
