Job Bank
As you know, unemployment is a major problem for transgender people. The need for a service such as ours is well overdue and we hope that you will help us to make the dream of secure employment a reality for many unemployed transgender professionals.Please accept a personal invitation to visit our groundbreaking site at
TJobBank is brand new, unique, and not-for-profit. All expenses are paid by . . . me. After a year of preparation, the site was finally launched on July 28th. My own experiences of being threatened and fired by my employer for being transgender in 2006, led to the creation of TJobBank. There is never a charge or any obligation whatsoever to prospective employers or employees and there never will be.

We hope that you see this invitation as we do – as a wonderful opportunity to help talented individuals who are seeking employment, to engage with progressive employers for the first time in history!

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at

Thank you for your time.
