Welcome to Texas Trans Kids!
There are thousands of trans youth who are currently living and thriving in Texas as their true and authentic selves. This website is a hub of resources and information for transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse youth in Texas and those who love and support them.
Our Get Help page has information and resources from organizations across Texas helping trans youth live their best lives.
Our Students’ Rights Toolkit explains how federal courts across the country have found in favor of transgender students’ rights to be themselves at school. There is a clear consensus among the courts that transgender students are protected under the U.S. Constitution and Title IX, as well as other federal and state laws, and our Toolkit explains how you can defend and protect students’ rights in Texas schools.
Our Actions & Events and Be an Advocate pages enable you to get involved and join us in supporting and advocating for transgender youth. As tens of thousands of young people live openly as their true and authentic selves—and are very much embraced and cherished in our state—some politicians seem fixated on targeting transgender youth for political gain. Unfortunately, these leaders’ attacks are cynical, reckless, and have caused unimaginable harm.
Our newest Legal Updates page contains legal updates on preserving best practice, life-saving healthcare for transgender youth after the unlawful February 2022 attacks from the Attorney General and Governor in Texas. You can find up-to-date information for young people, parents and guardians, teachers and others on this page, and you can also connect with us if you need legal help.
One of the lawsuits references a suicide attempt and suicidal thoughts in the LGBTQIA+ community. If you or someone you know requires help and support, please contact The Trevor Lifeline (866-488-7386) or TransLifeline (877) 565-8860.
