According to Backstage Capital, less than one percent ofventure money goes to startups with openly LGBTQ founders. According to the Human rights campaign, lawmakers in forty states introduced over three hundred anti-LGBTQ bills this season.
According to the Human rights campaign, more than one hundred forty of those bills specifically targeted the Trans community. Because of this, openly LGBTQ founders of tech companies that assist transgender individuals in states where their rights are being eliminated have lots of obstacles to overcome.
There are, however, a number of gender-affirming healthcare startups pushing ahead. One of those startups is Euphoria, which provides information and resources on gender-affirming care for transgender individuals. It is a paid subscription service that covers everything from transition assistance to funding and saving money for major health procedures.

When the law changed, Euphoria sent users a notification informing them of the alterations and provided resources for continuing their care. Users were able to sort through information and learn “how they exist as a member of society” with the help of the app,’ said Anthony. ‘Euphoria works to share information and resources,’ she stated. Another app, Trace, tracks the transition of trans individuals as they become their authentic selves. Its founder hails it as a location to celebrate transition.

In addition to keeping appointments and prescriptions organised, trace allows users to record photos and voice recordings to see and hear the physical changes they are experiencing. Friends and family of trans people are able to sign up for reminders and resources to help them support their loved ones. Aydian Dowlin, the app’s founder, has said that he has reconsidered how the app shares user data and how the app users receive data.

After the Supreme Court ruled against Rowy weight in the face of a wave of anti-trans legislation, Dowlin maintains that the app collects a minimal amount of data at the outset and does not sell it. He believes that we’ll stand up to anti-trans people who try to bully us into giving information. It’s already tough to be who you are, and these laws just make it more difficult, but as a trans individual, there are significant problems with privacy and lack of public support. The founders of Euphoria and Trace see a world where difficulties are eased. As Euphoria founder Kate Anthony told Tech Crunch, ‘We’ve been here all the time, and if things get worse, we’re not going to cease to exist.’
