Trans* and intersex movements are rapidly growing and their advocacy is influencing issues and policies around the world. This has drawn increased funding attention.
Recognizing the need for better coordination and collaboration between donors and activists, Global Action for Trans* Equality, the Open Society Foundations, and Wellspring Advisors partnered to host a meeting for funders and activists working on gender diversity in December of 2013 in Berlin. Twenty-two trans* and intersex activists came together with 24 foundation and bilateral donors to learn, network, and together identify ways to better collaborate and coordinate to advance the rights of trans* and intersex people.
This report captures the discussions and outcomes. It includes concrete recommendations to improve donors’ approaches to funding, as well as ideas about how to collaboratively and strategically support trans* and intersex movements. It also documents the methodology of organizing a donor and activist convening in a collaborative manner. A collaborative process results in a meeting that is more relevant and that builds the capacity of both donors and activists.
