Program Types: Drop-in, Trans-Specific,

The Trans People of Colour Project (TPOC) is a project funded by the Toronto Urban Health Fund. The project is designed to foster affirming support, greater access to food security, and access to meaningful sexual health promotion information for racialized trans folks.

TPOC is an integral component of The 519’s support of BIPOC 2  Spirit, trans, and non-binary community members within The 519, and has continued to provide support through the pandemic. Between 2019-2020, TPOC had over 300 visits to the drop-in.

At this time, TPOC is supporting our essential services, and providing dedicated Friendly Check-Ins to racialized trans folks in our communities. They are developing resources specifically for TPOC as well as training sessions for health and social service providers on how to work with TPOC in affirming ways in their practice.

TPOC will take a brief break starting Thursday, June 29, 2023 and resume September 2023. For more details, contact Yasmeen:
