THRIVE Lifeline

This week, as we continue our Together we THRIVE campaign, we move from community care to thinking about chosen family, and the ways we can create and care for these families.

Why do we build chosen families? Biological families are what we are born into, and are often held as the pinnacle relationship in society. But, these families so often might abuse, neglect, reject, and / or disown those of us within marginalized communities. Thus, we seek to form healthier, better bonded chosen families. Even though these chosen families still face challenges -- just like any relationship -- the intentionality behind mutually built relationships often helps us find safety, healing, and belonging.

Read below to learn what "chosen" might feel like, and follow along all week in our social media channels as we share tips for how we create chosen family.

We thrive within our chosen families.

Les shared last week what "thriving" is to them:
Reply below to tell us what "thriving" or "together" means to you! 

We'll be sharing your comments and images with our communities all month long and look forward to celebrating with you, together.
We're excited to announce the THRIVE Merchandise store!

You voted and we listened! THRIVE established a merchandise store with our friends at to sell T-shirts and other assorted products. We can't thank you enough for voting over the last few weeks to help us choose shirt designs. Huge shoutout to Yingluo for creating the designs for our merchandise! 

20% of all merchandise sales will go directly to THRIVE services, helping to pay for our:
  • 24/7/365 text-based crisis line,
  • RECRUIT Undergraduate Internship,
  • Curriculum development and educational outreach, and
  • TRANS affirmation cards and support groups.
Stop by the store to buy your favorites, and share the store link with your communities to help us get the word out about THRIVE!

*If you have any additional ideas for T-shirt designs, please reach out via We'll share them back to you all after their creation!
