We have spoken.
Recently, the hype around the second season of The Mandalorian has been colored by the unfortunate ignorance of one of the major castmates. Their rhetoric has included, amongst other things, the dismissal of pronoun importance - particularly in the trans community.
Luckily, there are more of us.
As a loving, inclusive Star Wars community, we encourage everyone looking forward to the upcoming adventures of Mando and The Child to help out our neighbors in the trans community by supporting the Transgender Law Center.
What better way to show that the heart and soul of a galaxy far, far away than by showing support to those being shunned at a time when they are most vulnerable? Every single bit helps, and at the end of the day, let’s flood the Star Wars community with support, love, and vibrance for all gender identities.
Because that is the way.

Upon completion of this campaign, funds will be donated to Transgender Law Center. We will update with the final donation total, once GoFundMe applies their transfer fees. As we reach our campaign goals, we will continue to increase the goal total in increments throughout the duration of the campaign.
The Transgender Law Center was selected based on their diverse board of directors, core beliefs, and their dedicated Black Trans Circles (BTC) program.
Vision Statement: “Transgender Law Center (TLC) is the largest national trans-led organization advocating for a world in which all people are free to define themselves and their futures. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC employs a variety of community-driven strategies to keep transgender and gender nonconforming people alive, thriving, and fighting for liberation.” (https://transgenderlawcenter.org/about)
