Stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community!

We need your help TODAY to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community who are under attack by nearly 500 new anti-LGBTQ bills this year alone. Please go to this link to help!


At Together Rising, we believe in bodily autonomy, but this right could end in Tennessee this Saturday, July 1, the date the ban on gender affirming care for anyone under 18 will take effect. 


That's why today we are committed to standing with OUTMemphis and its partner organizations, which are on the ground fighting back, providing resources and a pipeline of care out of Tennessee into Illinois where youth and their families can receive the gender affirming care that they want, need, and deserve.  


We need your help to raise $150,000 before the Friday June 30th deadline so OUTMemphis can expand the pipeline to support 15 additional youth to travel and receive treatment. 


They are making a way where there is no way – they are our people.  


YOU can help create safe passage and make a way out of no way for the most vulnerable LGBTQ+ youth. 


Let’s  make a way, together, for these 15 youths, so they know they do not fight alone.  Join us in solidarity by giving $10, $25 – whatever you can –  at 


Every penny we receive in this fundraiser will go out the door to stand with these most vulnerable LGBTQ+ youth.
