The books on my TBR for the Readathon

Support the Trans Rights Readathon!

Let's raise money for trans rights and read books by trans authors.

Support me as I fundraise for Trans Lifeline in the #TransRightsReadathon! 💚🏳️‍⚧️📚

The Trans Rights Readthon is an effort independently organized by the bookish community across platforms. It is to both fundraise for trans organizations and highlight books by trans authors.

From March 20-27, 2023, I will be reading books by trans authors. I have 7 books on my to-read list, intending to read at least 4.

I plan to donate $20/book read. I’d love for you to match this, but you can choose your own donation pledge per book OR give a flat donation. Whatever makes the most sense for you! ❤️

Currently, we've raised over $1,200! I'm floored, and I've upped the total goal to $2,000.

All donations to my readathon will benefit Trans Lifeline, a grassroots hotline and microgrants 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering direct emotional and financial support to trans people in crisis – for the trans community, by the trans community.

As a nonbinary trans person, it’s been everything from rage-inducing to scary and depressing as anti-trans bills proliferate in the US and hate is normalized in media and a small but vocal portion of society.

I appreciate your support as we’re stronger together. Please also share this message socially as every bit helps. Thank you. 💪

Follow and promote my Readathon

I will be keeping the campaign page updated. The best places to follow along with my reading are on TikTok, Goodreads, and StoryGraph reading challenge. I'm aiming for 4 books but snuck 7 on my to-read list.

Like, share, and comment to boost efforts

As you know, social media algos make it tough for regular people to surface our posts, even to our family and friends! Not everyone can make a monetary donation, but your likes, comments, and shares all push my message further.

Every bit of your support is so uplifting! Thank you!
