Your support is needed!
Transgender youth are at high risk of discrimination, bullying and suicide. According to a survey conducted by The Trevor Project ..."one in three transgender youth reported attempting suicide; almost one third reported being a victim of sexual violence; and more than half reported a two week period of depression". Support and education is vital to decreasing these statistics and improving their over all well being.
We are The Aphrodite Project. We are a grass roots, all volunteer organization who use our time and talents to make a positive difference in the lives of transgender youth. Most of the social options for transgender youth to meet and mingle are therapy based. Our workshops provide a safe place for love and beauty to shine and community to begin. Participants have the opportunity to learn beauty, style and grooming tips from some of the top industry professionals. Since all participants must be accompanied by parents or guardians the workshops offer families a chance to connect with each other for mutual support
Currently we offer monthly workshops, but have the desire and staffing to schedule many more, only funding is holding us back. We invite you to become a TAP Ally today and make a contribution. Let's Make a Difference Together.
