Trans/Gender Variant People In Prison Committee (TIP)
TIP's mission is to end the discrimination, medical neglect, abuse and violence experienced by transgender and gender variant people, and people with intersex conditions (TGI) in CA prisons. We are a prison abolitionist organization, in that while we fight for the immediate needs of TGI people in prison, we do not advocate for reforms that further expand the prison
industrial complex. We work to improve conditions for TGI people in prison and to promote public awareness of the experiences of TGI people in prison, all while prioritizing and building the leadership of current and former prisoners. Our work deliberately combines race, class, and ability
along with gender and intersex status, because low-income communities of color are disproportionately harmed by the prison industrial complex.
Thus, TIP embraces the wide diversity of gender apparent in communities of color, such as butches, studs, gressors, A.G.s, queens, divas, gay boys, and others. We are a community organizing project of the Transgender, Gender Variant and Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP).
