In light of the current US administration’s stated intention to eliminate recognition of transgender people, Affirmation clearly reiterates its worldwide mission to work for the understanding, acceptance, and self-determination of individuals with diverse gender identities and expressions, and affirms our trans, queer, and intersex siblings as seen, needed and loved.
As such, Affirmation joins the many organizations and individuals who denounce any intention to erase rights and protections of transgender, queer, and intersex persons. No person must ever be threatened with erasure.
Affirmation encourages its members to contact their representatives in Congress to urge their support for continued recognition of transgender people.
Affirmation will continue to provide a place of safety and support for transgender, queer, and intersex people. We support this space where you can be fully authentic in your sexual, gender and spiritual diversity. You are worthy of respect and protection from discrimination. You are seen, you are needed, you are loved!
