12 Days of Resources: #6 Trans Lifeline

As part of our 12 Days Resources series, we are highlighting a great resource for anyone who identifies as trans. The Trans Lifeline is primarily for transgender people experiencing a crisis. This includes people who may be struggling with their gender identity and are not sure that they are transgender. They aim to support questioning, transgender and transitioning people. They will work with you to connect you to services that might be helpful. The Trans Lifeline is staffed by transgender people themselves, as a result they are more likely to understand your struggles and concerns.

The line operates 18 hours a day 7 days a week.

Callers from Canada: 877-330-6366

Callers from the States: 877-565-8860
