Our mission is to to pool together the collective knowledge and experiences of the transgender community so we can maintain and expand Singapore’s largest online resource for the trans community and its allies.

Frequently asked questions

1) Do I have to be trans to volunteer?

No. We are merely looking for passionate individuals who can help us build our resource networks. We believe in a diverse and inclusive Singapore, and you should have the requisite skills to volunteer for us.

2) How many hours do I have to commit per week?

This depends on the type of role, but we are usually asking for up to 0.5-3 hours per week of work.

3) How long do I have to commit?

This depends on the type of role as well — we require a year’s commitment minimum for those who manage healthcare and transition email (or Instagram) enquiries, as they are personal and need to be handled with care and process.

Other roles may begin with a short-term project of 3 months or so, or run with 1-2 articles.
