TRANSGENDER-SOS a 501(c)3
Transgender SOS is reorganizing to best assist those trans-indentified individuals that do and will require a helping hand during the recovery period of this Coronavirus EMERGENCY.
Transgender SOS (TSOS) is a grassroots 501c3 located in Las Vegas, we mostly serve trans-identified persons living in the LV metro area. Our focus is on those who are victims of violence, work the streets, homeless and have a diagnosis of HIV positive or are in the high risk category. During this current Covid-19 pandemic these individuals safety has been threaten by their lack of education to the virus, education on self safety measure and access to PPE, loss of income and loss of housing/shelter and medical care. In addition a large percentage of the transgender community suffer from preexisting conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease and of course HIV. The majority of the transgender population in Las Vegas are cigarette smokers.
The circumstances above put the community TSOS seeks to serve at significant risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. Of all the medical risks the Covid-19 pandemic presents to the transgender community, we expect the spread of HIV to be of the highest concern.
The population in Clark County, NV is 2.2 million, with an estimated 16,500 that identify as transgender/non-binary and of that an estimated 2,145 are sex workers.
