Spreading #transTRUTH

Aug 2015

The True Colors Fund is proud to partner with Transgender Law Center and GSA Network to launch TRUTH, a national storytelling campaign that aims to build empathy, understanding, and a movement for transgender and gender non-conforming youth and their families to share their stories in their own words and in their own way.

At a time when transgender issues are in the news more than ever, TRUTH supports youth and families in speaking out in a way that feels right to them. TRUTH combines video storytelling, guidance for families, support and community-building for young people, and resources for media professionals in order to address the hostility and stereotypes transgender and gender non-conforming youth all too often face.

Engage with TRUTH through:

  • video profiles of youth and families
  • a storytelling toolkit guiding youth and families through the process of speaking out
  • the #transTRUTH Instagram selfie campaign – take selfies with your name, pronouns, and gender identity

TRUTH will roll out more videos and resources over the coming months, and youth leaders from across the country will shape and lead the campaign asTRUTH expands, so stay connected through the #transTRUTH hashtag.
