My name is Quinn Gormley and I’m writing on behalf of the Maine Transgender Network (MTN), a non-profit organization working to support, grow, and empower transgender people and community throughout the state of Maine.
When I came to my first MTN meeting, I was in a rough place. Growing up in rural Mid Coast Maine, I’d never met another trans person. I felt alone and ashamed, but all that went away the moment I walked through the door. For the first time in my life, I knew it was possible to be myself.
Those feelings of belonging, acceptance, and possibility are rooted in this community we’ve forged together. In a world where growing visibility of trans lives is met with attacks on our friends, families, bodies, and minds, MTN is a safe harbor, a place for people to be themselves, find support, and thrive.
We are asking supporters of our wonderful community to join in our monthly giving campaign, Thrive, to help us continue to do just that. Monthly giving campaigns are great because they are accessible for donors at all levels, and provide a foundation to build upon. Will you help us?
Here’s how it works: You select an amount of money you feel able to give each month. Five, ten, fifteen dollars- every penny counts- and then we take that much money out of your account each month. At the end of the year, you’ll get a letter from us, thanking you for your support, and telling you how much you gave over the course of the year. MaineTransNet is a 501(c)(3) organization, and this donation is tax deductible!
Thanks for your continued support of our great work. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to grow and strengthen our community.
