1. We are Re-Naming the Organization
We are plenty excited to announce as we have been planning for the past year to re-brand our organization to match the community we have represented and hope to support moving into the future.
We have decided to rename ourselves

U - Under-Resourced people
Why are we doing this?
Over the past several years TYC has been gradually moving toward a more specific seat speaking for and on behalf of those who have been unable to accees resources nearest them because of private hurdles and issues people face as a result of not being out.
We have begun to see ourselves more as a bridge and conduit that allows these people to get the resources a little easier from other organizations and begun acting as such. But there has been immense confusion as to who we serve with the Trans* Youth moniker saying we only represent transgender youth. This is no longer true. And as a result we felt the need to re-brand ourselves more trully to the name.
We hope that this transition will help others access our resources safer, and with greater understanding for what we as an organization do. We hope you like it, but we are an organization for the community, so if not, please tell us by emailing us at
