Gifting to Trans Youth in Need

By Río Palomares, November 30, 2022

Howdy y’all! Please consider donating or gifting to trans youth this holiday season through Transanta! Transanta is a community organization who delivers gifts to trans youth both safely and anonymously. Queer & trans people have been at the center of hate in more ways than one — whether that be direct tragic attacks or anti-trans legislation being proposed across the country. It isn’t difficult to see or understand how this negatively impacts our community deeply, especially BIPOC trans youth. While there is a plethora of work to do and many conversations to have; focusing on giving to trans youth is more important than ever. If you have the means to donate, please do and help bring some joy to trans youth. Being queer and trans is beautiful; let’s do our best to support trans youth and that notion. Happy holidays to you and yours! Wishing you all warmth and safety.

You can donate on the Transanta website or if you’re looking to gift directly, check out the wishlists on their Instagram.

Río is a queer/non-binary/transmasc BIPOC realtor and uses they/them pronouns. Welcome to inclusive real estate. My business is primarily focused on helping all marginalized communities who have struggled and/or continue to struggle in systemic oppression -- especially within the world of real estate. Coming from a huge part of these communities as well,  I vow to represent and advocate for you to the best of my ability. Let's help you build generational wealth and plant your roots here! Originally from Southern California, Río immediately felt at home in Portland after landing in the St. Johns neighborhood in 2016. Between the lush landscapes, phenomenal food, and friendly residents, it didn’t take long for them to fall in love with the city. After working in the service industry for over a decade, real estate became a natural next step in Río’s career. They are fiercely empathetic and their good sense of humor becomes apparent within minutes of chatting with them. Through their previous experience as a barber, barista, and bartender (just to name a few), Río has come to highly value building and maintaining a relationship with each and every one of their clients. In their free time, Río can often be found snuggled up on the couch with their cats, playing video games or enjoying a classic horror movie marathon. They have a genuine appreciation for Portland’s ever-changing seasons, taking them in while driving through the countryside or walking through one of Portland’s many gorgeous parks. Río is meticulous when it comes to the details. Whether you’re looking for a groovy, wood panelled Mid-Century Modern or a hauntingly beautiful Victorian, they are determined to make your vision a reality. With dreams of one day becoming a homeowner themself, Río can truly empathize with those who have similar goals. They are here to take the stress out of home buying and make this fun, exciting journey a breeze for you!
