A special look at who this year’s 1,505 Surgery Fund applicants are…
Point of Pride’s Annual Transgender Surgery Fund is a scholarship-like program that provides direct financial assistance to trans folks who cannot afford their gender-affirming surgery. We accept applications every November from trans folks in need of support. This infographic shares a bit of insight to who our applicants are, in order to illustrate our community’s challenges in getting the health care we so urgently need.
Our applicants came from all walks of life around the world. All ages, all backgrounds, all genders – all different lived experiences. What they all share in common is not being able to complete a gender-affirming surgery because they lack the resources to do so.
Please consider making a donation to help support this program. Every dollar counts and changes the lives of our recipients.
