Brother 2 Brother Binder Grant Program

Supporting Your Safe & Healthy Transition

Black Transmen Inc, working with our community partners, will award Free New & Gently Used binders for transmen of color in low-income communities through the Brother 2 Brother Binder Grant program.  [If you are not a Trans person of color, please contact us, and we will tell you about other possible sources of binders.]

Our program is designed to support your safe and healthy transition, providing binders to those who are in need, and simply cannot afford to purchase a binder on their own.  All transmen of color who are focused on advancing black trans equality are urged to apply!  Let us know if you have binder(s) to donate!**

To qualify for a binder, you must:

  • be 18 years of age or older
  • be either unemployed, or demonstrate financial hardship
  • be an active part of the Black Transmen community (engaging on social media, or become a part of BTMI in some way)
  • attend at least 3 Akanni sessions before a binder is provided to you

How to Apply?

To request a binder, please complete this form: Binder Grant Application  In order to help as many people as possible, we offer only one binder, per person, in a 12-month cycle.
