Reason 7. Safe Space: Trans and GNC individuals need safe spaces for testing and refining their public presentations of their identity. Cisgender individuals take for granted the years spent learning feminine and masculine mannerisms. The GIC enables our guests to try out new styles and get helpful advice during their journey without fear of reprisal. http://ow.ly/TUV39 #ColoradoGiveDay

Reason 3. Research: Studies have shown that 41% of people who are trans* or GNC have attempted suicide sometime in their lives. Why is this rate so high? How do we support trans* and GNC individuals? These are the questions we work to answer. http://ow.ly/TUV39 #ColoradoGiveDay
