For the Gworls (FTG) is a collective that raises housing and medical funds for Black trans people.
Founded by Asanni Armon, For the Gworls raises money on behalf of Black trans people to help them pay for rent and gender-affirming surgeries. FTG does this in one of the most spectacularly unique ways, by throwing monthly rent parties. Their mission is to raise funds to help Black trans folks afford essential services that are often denied to them, such as rent and comprehensive healthcare. FTG accomplishes this not only with direct mutual aid for their community members’ pockets, but also teach-ins, panel discussions, and providing healing spaces.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the difficulty of Black trans folks securing these services, FTG has adjusted to serve their community. While the rent parties are currently on hold, FTG has taken to online crowdfunding and creating their Medical Travel Fund.
