Trans-Affirming Resources For Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which is a time for people of all genders who have survived sexual violence to receive support––and for those who haven’t experienced sexual assault, to educate themselves on ways to make a difference. Here are some transgender and TGNC affirming #SAAM resources.


  • The HEAL Project is a BIPOC-led, Trans/Nonbinary-led, and Survivor-led educational initiative using media to prevent and end Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) through healing the wounds of sexual oppression and embracing sexual liberation.
  • Fenway Health’s Violence Recovery Program now operates a call center from Monday through Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM: 617.927.6250
  • Molasses aims to create both community and opportunity for black trans and gender-variant people and queer people of color through cultural work, coalition-building, and linkage to (self)care.
  • National Center for Transgender Equality’s Survivors of Violence Resource page
  • Online Self Defense Resources from Pop Gym
  • The Connecticut Alliance To End Sexual Violence’s LGBTQIA Resources page has a list of CT specific LGBTQIA organizations as well as documentaries, information on joining the Queer Caucus Against Sexual Assault, recommended books, and more.
  • The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) has a breakdown on violence against LGBT folks as well as whether or not this violence can be a “hate crime”, knowing the abuser well, childhood violence, and more–as well as hotlines for assistance.
  • THORN is a Chicago-based program that sends self defense kits to BIPOC trans folks with a prioritization on trans women, sex workers, and disabled people. Read their Self Defense Guide and reserve a kit here.
