The December Project

There's that old adage that a worry shared is a worry halved.

This is a shout out to a great trans community initiative this holiday season; the December Project was launched on December 1 as a support network for transfolks who, given that this season is a lonely, isolating one for many of us, would like someone to talk to. The Project, founded by Jennifer Finney Boylan, Helen Boyd, Mara Keisling and Dylan Scholinski, aims to: "raise the spirits of people in the trans community during what can be a difficult time of year".

Boylan elaborates on her site: "We are trans activists, homebodies, authors, parents, spouses, artists, and teachers, including a trans man, two trans women, and a loving spouse.  Here’s our pledge to you: If you feel low this December, and need someone to talk to, contact us, and we’ll call you on the phone.  Period."

See the rest of Boylan's post for more information. And to the December Project network, Good on you! Here's hoping that this becomes an annual project!
