The Validation Station sets up a daily text routine with trans and GNC folx who might find themselves isolated during the time of COVID-19. Very often, Queer, Trans, and Non-binary folx have to construct their own family after coming out--friends and kin are pivotal. However, as lock downs create spotty rules for social engagement, it can be hard to comfortably hang out with your queer family. Additionally, in-person support groups for grief or transition will be radically shifting forms or not meeting at all, creating a disruption in mental health and care for QTNB persons.
The Validation Station, as part of [this foundation], is hoping to fill that a part of that gap in mental care.
