Our History

Phoenix Collective was founded in 2014 and was originally a Tumblr-based support group with the goal of promoting transgender content creators, networking transgender youth and young adults with resources, and fundraising to provide displaced transgender people with food and clothing. By 2016, we had over 10,000 followers and 12 volunteers.

Due to changes made on Tumblr’s site regarding content, our support group was removed for featuring LGBT+ content. We decided that the solution was to create a self-hosted site where our content was under our own control, therefore allowing us to continue to support transgender creators.

We’re currently migrating our site, so new applications won’t be added here for the next few days. Keep on the lookout for updates within the next week!
