Mission Statement

We approach the health and human rights crises faced by transgender sex workers with harm reduction, crisis intervention, transitional housing, post-incarceration support, health care advocacy & safer sex education, guided by the principle that solutions affecting the trans community must from within our own community. Through building future trans community leaders, public education, sex worker rights advocacy - and in collaboration with our allies - policy solutions, G.L.I.T.S. addresses the stigmatization and criminalization of trans people and the laws that perpetuate it.

Description

GLITS is a New York City based, transwoman-led social justice advocacy and service organization providing crisis intervention, post incarceration support, leadership training, health care advocacy & safer sex education for the LGBTQ community, especially transgender women who engage or have engaged in sex work.
