Indya Moore is bringing some Christmas cheer to kids and young adults in need through their new program TransSanta, which helps connect willing donors with trans people in need of holiday gifts.
The Pose star recently explained the significance of the holiday venture on Instagram.
"So excited to announce @tranSanta! A SAFE and CONVENIENT way to give and receive, for trans and intersex youth-led by trans and intersex people! This year has been so stressful and especially for trans folks. Trans issues don't receive much visibility or attention, unfortunately, but this year has been the most violent and deadly for my community," Moore wrote on Instagram.
"It has been very upsetting. So one day my eldest and one of my most beloved loved ones @chasestrangio and I flushed and cried about it and decided we needed to do something for the young ones. We linked up with these two loving geniuses @denimdaddy420 and @pidgeon and @tranSanta was born," Moore explained.
The TransSanta Instagram page has dozens of messages from young trans people seeking everything from help with college tuition to basic needs like coats, socks and shoes.
