A New Website for Transgender College Students and Those That Support Them

I have always been a huge fan of the National Center for Transgender Equality. They have shaped and influenced the political landscape in D.C. and nationwide in a way that is very favorable for anyone who identifies as transgender and their families/friends.

Today while running my daily search on transgender issues and topics I came across a press release and website that gives me even more of a reason to love them, and I think you’ll feel the same way when you read further and learn about the Transgender On-campus Nondiscrimination Information Project (TONI Project).

From their press release, the TONI Project is, “a first-of-its-kind space for students to share college and university policies important to transgender people.”

In previous blog posts I have directed users to the Transgender Law and Policy Institute (TLPI), a site that has helpful information for any student or staff member curious about University/College policies that support their transgender students. To add the new resources that TONI provides will only strengthen a student’s or staff’s sense of safety and understanding of policies.

Both the TONI Project and TLPI should be used to access (and also add) current information about campus housing policies, health plans, and curricula.

If you feel alone, please know that there are organizations and people out there to help you.
