Founded in 2002, the TransAdvocate is investigative news and nuanced commentary from a boots-on-the-ground trans advocate perspective. What sets the TransAdvocate apart is its commitment to publishing contextual pieces based upon original investigative effort. In other words, we don’t simply repeat the news, we report the news as uncovered though actual investigation.

Specifically, the TransAdvocate focuses on watchdogging anti-transgender media tropes and misinformation that gains social currency. We’re willing to do what it takes to expose hate — especially when hate is being peddled as reason, faith or journalism. We here at the TrasnAdvocate generally won’t pull our punches and we are all too happy to  drag the truth – kicking and screaming – into the light of day. In short, we create original trans journalism:


The TransAdvocate is a project of the  Transgender Foundation of America (TFA), a 501c3 nonprofit (EIN: 76-0670632). Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The TransAdvocate compensates its writers from reader donations and fundraising activities; your support ensures that our writers are paid for their hard work.

About The TransAdvocate:

  • The TransAdvocate editorial board controls content presented on the Transadvocate.
  • TransAdvocate authors are members of the TransAdvocate Writers Collective.
  • The TransAdvocate is a member of the Houston Transgender Unity Committee (HTUC). TransAdvocate archival materials are maintained by the Houston Transgender Archive.
  • The TransAdvocate facilitates The Conversations Project (TCP), a historical project that seeks to bring attention to a decades-old intersectional trans, intersex and genderqueer inclusive radical feminist tradition. TCP publishes a quarterly journal and is serialized at the Feminist Times.

About TFA

Organized in 1998, TFA is a Houston-based grassroots nonprofit organization that obtained its 501c3 nonprofit status in 2001. TFA was brought into existence through the hard work and support its parent organization, the Gulf Coast Transgender Community (GCTC) which traces its roots back to 1965. In addition to TFA, GCTC was instrumental in organizing pioneering organizations like the Texas Association for Transsexual Support (TATS) and historic events such as the International Conference on Transgender Law and Employment Policy. GCTC’s spirit lives on in the TFA mission of improving the quality of life for transgender people.

TFA facilitates numerous trans support groups and community events such as the Unity Banquet, now in its 24th year. Additionally it maintains the Transgender Archive and the Trans Center, provides annual scholarships to trans-supportive academics, represents trans health concerns with health departments across the nation, trains organizations, companies, and schools throughout the nation and pioneered trans homeless, social, and medical services.
