About Us

“Providing aid, community, and building power for
all transgender people in the greater Nashville Area.”
TAN Logo

Trans Aid Nashville (TAN) is of our community, for our community. Transgender, genderqueer, nonconforming, and others who feel they fall into this community are welcome to access what resources we have available.

Trans Aid Nashville is a Nashville based mutual aid collective directed by transgender Nashvillians with the purpose of providing aid, community, and building power for all transgender people in the Greater Nashville area. We are a grassroots, all-volunteer movement grounded in the principles of solidarity, mutual aid, and autonomous direct action. By working with, listening to, and seeking leadership from trans community members, we are building long-term, sustainable networks of care to alleviate the immediate needs of the community while simultaneously building solidarity and power to address the systemic root causes of the issues we face.

 

TAN is committed to the safety, autonomy, and human rights of people in the transgender community, and stands in solidarity with the many social justice movements intersectional to our own, including but not limited to Black Lives Matter, disability rights, drug and immigration reform, gender equality and the broader LGBTQ+ movement, and the rights of the working class.

Our Core Principles:

Collectivism

  1. Working towards a mutual aid practice grounded in solidarity, not charity, and to operate in the spirit of collective care and responsibility for the local transgender community

  2. Creating accountable mutual aid that builds power with and not power over.
