We will compensate each participant at the end of the group meeting. To join, you must identify as a BIPOC Trans MTF person in the United States & you must be 21 or older. If interested, please get in touch with us here with your contact information:
Our bi-weekly Safe Space Meetings allow trans-identified women to connect with other individuals living with HIV, share experiences of receiving care, and find resources and support. Attendees are encouraged to bring their authentic selves.
PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV-negative people from contracting HIV. People who are at high risk of HIV exposure can take PrEP before exposure to protect against HIV.
PrEP is safe for transgender people and safe to take alongside gender-affirming hormones and other gender-affirming procedures. Contact us to find prep near you.
AHF Healthcare Centers provide advanced medical care designed specifically for people living with HIV.
Keep us in mind for all referrals regarding shared living space with opportunities for assistance with grooming, bathing, transportation, medication, management, meal preparation, and skilled home health services through our partner company.
From gender-affirming hormone therapy and transition support to medications for anxiety and depression, it can be hard to find one clinic or doctor who understands how to care for you. That’s why we founded Plume, a virtual home for transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming people.

Gender-affirming hormone therapy consists of either feminizing (estrogen) or masculinizing (testosterone) hormones. Many transgender people take hormone therapy as part of a gender transition to help their bodies and appearance align with their gender identity.
Hormone therapy can make you feel more at ease with yourself emotionally and physically. People have reported experiencing discomfort because they are unhappy with their appearance or their gender role. Perhaps your appearance and gender role conflict with your inner sense of gender identity. If this is how you feel, hormone treatment may help you overcome your distress.
Hormones are helpful in making your appearance more masculine or feminine. Beginning gender-affirming hormone therapy has many similarities to going through puberty. Although hormones taken in adulthood can help to keep your bones healthy, they can't alter your skeletal shape or your height.
