For 25 years, I've been making a difference on important social issues wherever I could, with a focus on consumer rights and "countless other projects related to LGBTQ identities," according to Time. My work includes:
  • thousands of pages of free online consumer information on a wide range of topics
  • thousands of free Wikipedia articles
  • dozens of free videos to help people with their gender transitions
  • major film and television projects, many on trans issues
  • investigating scams and petitioning the government to protect trans consumers
  • helping companies and social media platforms be more gender-inclusive
  • mentoring and supporting trans filmmakers
  • preserving historically important films about trans people 
  • helping trans+ and gender+ youth and their families
  • other writing that includes books, blog posts, and magazine articles
I have been doxxed, defamed, unsuccessfully sued, and threatened by all sorts of people who want to silence me or my messages. It will take more than that!

Here's where I need your help. I have put everything back into my work, and that work does not pay much. I invested my prime earning years into helping people for free, because I believe the more people I can help, the more time and money they have to support important causes. If my work has helped you, I hope you'll consider helping me in return with Patreon support in any amount!

When you help me reach this goal, I will resume the Spanish-language translation of Transgender Map. This underserved community is the second-largest language group in our hemisphere.
