No matter the what Trump Administration says, federal and state laws - and, in many cases, the U. Constitution - prohibit discrimination in health care and insurance because you're transgender. Federal and state law prohibits most public and private health plans from discriminating against you because you are transgender. This means, with few exceptions, that it is illegal discrimination for your health insurance plan to refuse to cover medically necessary transition-related care. If you do not yet have health insurance, you can visit our friends at Out2Enroll to understand your options.

Elon Musk relocates private foundation to Austin
Most college-bound students are looking for ways to supplement their education fund. Loans, both federal and private, help thousands of students every year finance their education, but that money needs to be repaid — and with interest. Before considering any form of education loan, students need to investigate possible grants for which they may be qualified. Grant money for college never has to be repaid, and there are a wide array of grant programs designed to benefit every kind of student, and every course of study. Thousands of organizations, both public and private, have grant money to award to students who are struggling to cover the costs of their college tuition.
LGBT rights in Texas
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT individuals often face challenges and barriers to accessing needed health services and, as a result, can experience worse health outcomes. While LGBT individuals have many of the same health concerns as the general population, they experience certain health challenges at higher rates, and also face several unique health challenges. In particular, research suggests that some subgroups of the LGBT community are more likely to suffer from certain chronic conditions and face higher prevalence and earlier onset of disabilities compared to heterosexuals. In addition to the higher rates of illness and health challenges, some LGBT individuals are more likely to experience challenges obtaining care.
During this crisis, Funders for LGBTQ Issues is committed to our mission of increasing the scale and impact of philanthropic resources aimed at enhancing the well-being of LGBTQ communities, promoting equity, and advancing racial, economic and gender justice. As we address LGBTQ funding at this time, we also denounce any racist and xenophobic overtones that overtly or unintentionally have pervaded some of the conversations surrounding the COVID outbreak. Further, we center disability and HIV justice in our efforts to support our community members who are most affected by this pandemic. This includes a listing of rapid-response funds and grassroots campaigns specifically focused on the needs of LGBTQ communities, as well as emerging practices that funders are implementing to better support LGBTQ nonprofits and grassroots groups in the context of the pandemic. Please note that this guide may not yet be comprehensive, and we are adding new resources as we hear about them.
