As the first of its kind in the world, The Transgender District aims to stabilize and economically empower the transgender community through ownership of homes, businesses, historical and cultural sites, and safe community spaces. Tangent to the mission of The Transgender District, housing is a pillar that contributes to the long-term well-being of the transgender community.
Housing Opportunities for Trans Tenants (HOTT) aims to provide equitable, stable, and gender affirming housing opportunities for TGNC-identified individuals. A leading initiative of The Transgender District, HOTT tackles the disproportional housing crisis in the San Francisco Bay Area that has displaced many long-time residents as a result of gentrification and a drastic increase in rent prices. The transgender community has been, and continues to be, a promiment aspect of the rich and diverse culture in San Francisco. However, transgender people are more likely than any other population to experience homelessness due to reasons attributed to housing deprivation originating in discrimination and transphobia.
Housing Opportunity for Trans Tenants not only provides a subsidy, but rather an investment in the future of transgender people by uplifting and empowering their financial stability and the accumulation of wealth.
