Welcome to the website of the Transgender Advocacy Council [TAC]. We look forward to servicing the transgender community here in the greater Cincinnati area. We are incorporated in the state of Ohio and our 501(c)(3) status was approved by the IRS on May 7, 2019.
The transgender community has made dramatic progress in the last 10 years. Through hard work, organizing, story-telling and risk-taking, transgender leaders have made significant headway in educating the public about the needs and lived experiences of transgender individuals. As a result, there is greater public awareness of the transgender community and their rights and needs.
Yet even with this progress, transgender people continue to face blatant discrimination in workplace and housing, high levels of violence, and poor health outcomes.
The Transgender Advocacy Council was formed to act as an umbrella organization supporting both individuals and new and long existing grassroots transgender support organizations in the greater Cincinnati area in the areas of policy advocacy, direct services, outreach to encourage culture change, community organizing, and other key strategies.
TAC’s short term goals are to make sure that the Transgender Day of Visibility and the Transgender Day of Remembrance are organized, funded, and representative of our Community.
TAC’s medium term goals include providing funding for projects implemented by the local grassroots transgender support groups in Greater Cincinnati area.
TAC’s long term goals include a transgender specific community space and to provide safe, emergency housing for trans people.
