Transgender Health Empowerment (THE) has had to dramatically curtail their services due to financial difficulties, as reported today in the Washington Blade. This reduction happened very suddenly, and services trans community members depend on have been abruptly cut off. Immediate action must be taken to ensure THE clients get services they need to ensure continuity of care. THE has provided essential services to DC trans communities since 1996, and without these services many trans people and LGBTQ youth will be left without access to vital housing and health care services. DCTC stands with THE’s clients and calls on DC Government,as THE’s primary funder, to act quickly to make sure that necessary services continue. DC’s trans communities face significant health disparities, and we must take collective responsibility to ensure that those needs are addressed.
