Offering a Safe Place for Transgender and
Gender Non-Conforming Individuals
With more than 3 years of supporting transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, The G.H.O.S.T. Project is a nonprofit organization in Brooklyn, New York geared towards providing both support and empowerment to members of the transgender community who are either struggling with or have overcome gender identity-related issues.
The acronym G.H.O.S.T. stands for Guiding and Helping Others Survive the Transition. This philanthropy-based organization is owned and operated by three urban transgender women born and raised in a homophobic southern society that subjugates and oppresses gender-related issues.
To combat the self-hate and insecurities placed upon them and their community, these organizers host quarterly events that uplift, empower, and educate the transgender and gender non-conforming community and their allies.
The G.H.O.S.T. Project event attendees are provided with resources and assistance in the form of clothing, grooming, HIV testing and counseling, prep information, metro cards, job search information and assistance, trans health information, and much more.
It is our goal to provide trans and gender non-conforming individuals support and guidance throughout their transition process while both educating and empowering them.
We, at The G.H.O.S.T. Project, set out to offer our community a safe and non-judgmental space to come and share their experiences with others. Through our outreach efforts, we anticipate the creation of a safer community for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
