Already subject to oppression, the trans community is often pushed to the fringes of society and forced to live with a higher level of unemployment and poverty. In the aftermath of the pandemic, they have received little assistance from government bodies and are left to fend for themselves even though most of their avenues of earning have been closed due to the lockdown. Several prominent people and organizations are organizing fundraisers to support the trans community during these difficult times. If you’d like to contribute, you can find the campaigns here.
