Trans Lifeline

Trans Lifeline was founded in 2014 as a peer-support crisis hotline. The Hotline was, and still is, the only service in the country in which all operators are transgender. Because of the particularly vulnerable relationship transgender people have with police, it is also the only service in the country with a policy against non-consensual active rescue.

 The hotline is open 24/7! We have operators guaranteed to be on call during the following hours:

Pacific: 7:00am-2:00am
Mountain: 8:00am-3:00am
Central: 9:00am-4:00am
Eastern: 10:00am-5:00am
Alaska: 6:00am-1:00am
Hawaii: 5:00am-12:00am

Operators are also frequently available during off-hours, so please call whenever you need to!
