Inclusivity: We embrace the diversity within the transmasculine community and strive to provide support that is accessible and welcoming to all.

Our History

In 2017, in response to the alarming statistics of attempted suicide rates among transmasculine individuals (51%), Tbuddy was founded. Recognizing the need for a safe and accessible support system, the organization envisioned a service where transmasculine people could connect with peers who understood their unique challenges.

Driven by the common thread of isolation and alienation experienced by many transmasculine individuals, Tbuddy was built on the foundation of peer support. Over the past four years, it has grown into a thriving community. Today, Tbuddy remains dedicated to providing a space where transmasculine people can discuss anything on their minds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
