Let's wave the Trans Flag

Transgender people and discrimination

Transgender people can be faced with prejudices and discrimination, such as unequal treatment when applying for a job, being addressed with the wrong pronouns and or gender and being verbally and or physically abused. In order to change this, TransAmsterdam wants to bring the Transgender flag to the attention of the general public.

Through our Transgender flag project we hope to go against discrimination and to create more acceptance for the Transgender community in our society. Furthermore, we want to give a Transgender flag to all organizations who are dedicating themselves or want to dedicate themselves to the rights of the Transgender community. And for

organizations who want to start Art and or Cultural projects.

With these donation funds we want to:

*Start our Transgender flag project

*Purchase Transgender flags which we can hand out

*Start Transgender Art and or Cultural projects

*Start Transman Maroc Binder Project

Will you help us so we can start our beautiful project? Every small donation matters!

Information regarding the Transgender flag

The Transgender Flag was created on the nineteenth of August in the year 1999, by an American Transwoman and activist known as Monica Helms. On the nineteenth of August 2014 the Transgender flag was donated by Monica to a Smithsonian Institute. And in 2017 TransAmsterdam donated the Transgender flag used in the first Amsterdam Transpride, which was held in 2014, to the Amsterdam Museum. Where it has been included in the Museums collection.

Transgender personen en discriminatie

Transgender personen kunnen te maken krijgen met vooroordelen en discriminatie, zoals ongelijke behandeling bij een sollicitatie, verkeerd aangesproken worden en verbaal en/of fysiek geweld. Om hierin verandering te brengen, wil TransAmsterdam, de transgender vlag onder de aandacht brengen bij het grote publiek. Door ons transgender vlaggen project hopen we discriminatie tegen te gaan en meer begrip te krijgen voor transgenders in de samenleving. Daarnaast willen we de transgender vlag overhandigen aan organisaties die zich inzetten of willen inzetten voor de rechten van transgender personen en transgender kunst en culture projecten opzetten

Met het gedoneerde geld willen we:

*ons trans vlaggen project starten

*transgender vlaggen aanschaffen om te kunnen overhandigen

*transgender kunst en culture projecten opzetten

*transmannen binder maroc project starten

Help jij ons, zodat wij mooie project kunnen starten? Alle kleine beetjes helpen!

Informatie over de Transgender Vlag

Transgender Flag Day

Op 19 augustus vieren we met elkaar de Transgender Flag Day in Amsterdam en in de rest van de wereld. De trans vlag is een symbool voor transgender pride, diversiteit en transgenderrechten.

"The stripes at the top and bottom are light blue, the traditional color for baby boys.

The stripes next to them are pink, the traditional color for baby girls.

The stripe in the middle is white, for those who are intersex, transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender.

The pattern is such that no matter which way you fly it, it is always correct, signifying us finding correctness in our lives."
