Story

The GenderCool Project is a youth-led movement bringing positive change to the world with our Champions, transgender and non-binary young people between the ages of 12-18.

The Champions are replacing misinformed opinions with positive experiences meeting transgender and non-binary youth who are thriving.

GenderCool is an inspiring disrupter. We are breaking through to millions of people who say they've never met a transgender or non-binary person.

We focus on who transgender and non-binary youth are, not what they are. They are the next generation of CEOs, filmmakers, doctors, teachers, tech leaders, journalists, athletes, and lawmakers. These are the stories we tell.

GenderCool collaborates with some of the world's most visionary organizations including Dell, Intuit, Nike, Abbvie, HP, and more, helping them move from envisioning progress to making progress happen. This movement is creating positive change by influencing understanding, business, and culture.

GenderCool was inspired by the powerful, positive experience of one family. Jen and John are the parents of four, including their daughter, Chazzie, (She/Her), who proudly identifies as transgender.

In 2017, their search for positive stories about transgender and non-binary kiddos like Chazzie turned up (nearly) empty. They could count on one hand the positive stories they found that focused on Who these young people are as talented, amazing leaders.

In stark contrast, it took all of five seconds to find a tidal wave of misleading, sensational, negative content about these amazing young people.

Something had to be done. Jen joined forces with friend and mentor Gearah Goldstein, an expert on diversity and inclusion, wife, parent, and proud transgender person. Together, with five extraordinary young people and their families, GenderCool was born.

Today, GenderCool has become a worldwide movement. Your gift this Giving Tuesday allows us to continue the work we do, changing the world for the next generation.

About the charity
