Ahead of the International Transgender Day of Visibility, and amid the unprecedented political assaults on transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming youth in the United States, Logo announced its MTV Entertainment Group Social Impact microgrant campaign for LGBTQ community centers nationwide in partnership with CenterLink, the world's largest LGBTQ community-based network, according to a press release.
The campaign, "SEEN: Trans Youth Town Halls Everywhere," will award $1,500 microgrants to 15 LGBTQ centers across the country as well as $5,000 to nonprofit partner CenterLink for network distribution.
Grant recipients include the Pride Center of Terre Haute and The LGBTQ Center, both in Indiana; Magic City Acceptance Center, in Alabama; The Center: Naples Pride, in Florida; LGBTQ Center: University of North Florida; Pride Center West Texas; and The Center Project, in Missouriall of which are located in states with active anti-trans bills.
Each center will receive discussion guides developed in partnership with GSA Network to facilitate in-person screenings of 'Trans Youth Town Hall' in their communities.
As previously announced, Logo is set to air its "Trans Youth Town Hall," hosted and executive produced by Raquel Willis, activist and former executive editor of Out magazine. The special passes the mic to everyday trans and non-binary youth, who share what brings them joy, the obstacles that stand in their way, and what we all can do about it. Their conversations are intercut with context from expert panelists, including ACLU lawyer Chase Strangio, who argued and won a landmark trans rights case in front of the Supreme Court; actress/activist Jen Richards, who appeared in Netflix's Disclosure and Tales of the City; and Dominique Morgan, executive director of The Okra Project as well as Black & Pink.
Each part of the special tackles a different topic: Sports & School (March 29), Health & Safety (March 30), and Representation & Identity, airing on the Trans Day of Visibility (March 31). They all will run at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT.
For more information, people can visit Logo on its YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and Instagram accounts.
