Amid a record-setting year of anti-transgender legislation, TransLash Media presents our new limited-series podcast, The Anti-Trans Hate Machine. This four-part program takes us behind the curtain of the dark money, right wing organizations, radical figures and extreme ideology driving the anti-trans backlash across the country. Explore our #AntiTransHateMachine series guide and classroom resources.

We expose a highly-organized political apparatus, which makes the future potentially darker for everyone. To do so, we center the voices and stories of trans people, as well as their families, who are victimized by this hostile movement with our award-winning journalist Imara Jones guiding us along the way.

“Nothing written about the rise of the anti-trans right has sufficiently captured the massive threat it poses to trans lives and its deep financial relationship with the broader onslaught on our democracy. Imara Jones and TransLash Media are finally telling that story.”

– Gillian Branstetter, National Women’s Law Center
