Inspired by the national #IllGoWithYou project, the #TakeMyHandTexas campaign combats discrimination against transgender and gender non-binary people across the state.

Out Youth wants to empower allies of the transgender community to stand with them, to reach out and offer to walk with them in any gendered space – be that a visit to a doctor, a social event, or even something as simple as going to grab a cup of coffee.

The cornerstone of the campaign is a button, simple in design, but clear in its message. A single outstretched hand signifies that the wearer is an ally to the transgender community and will gladly accompany someone to any gender-specific space they feel uncomfortable going to alone, including the bathroom.
