As this year comes to an end, we are left to consider the epidemic of violence against transgender people. At least 22 transgender and non-binary people have been killed in the U.S. alone since November 2018. Trump and his administration have rolled back anti-discrimination rules designed to protect transgender people, leaving them vulnerable. While the state of affairs for transgender people seems dismal, that’s not the full picture. Transgender people are still thriving, and that’s what we’re highlighting here — particularly those who are thriving economically by starting their own businesses. With the holidays fast approaching, we all know it’s not only important to get our loved ones thoughtful gifts, but to spend our dollars thoughtfully, too.
We’ve curated a list of the best gifts for transgender people, made and sold by transgender people. Each of the items below is from a trans-owned and operated businesses to consider supporting this holiday season. Of course, these aren’t only gifts for transgender people — support the trans community this year by getting each of the people on your list this year a gift from a trans-owned business. Whether you’re purchasing for a friend, a newly out co-worker, or the love of your life, there will certainly be a gift for all the people in your life.
