What is #transpizza?

Trans pizza is an easy way for people to directly and materially support trans people! I relay money from folks who want to contribute to hungry trans folks by sending them $20 $50 for pizza. That's all there is to it! All the money goes to the trans person.

How do I donate a pizza?

Just send money ($20 is the usual amount) using the link below, or send via PayPal to donate@transpizza.org. For the time being, all donations will be done anonymously, to make it easier to keep up with.

Note that this is not a charitable organization and your donation is not tax-deductible.

Note also that this is the only way to donate to #transpizza! Never send pizza money to any other email address, even if the person asking appears to be me.

Who can get a pizza?

If you are in the "trans umbrella" you are eligible. That includes transgender, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, two-spirit, and agender folks. If you're non-cisgender, you're eligible.

How do I get a pizza?

On most days, I do a simple contest on my twitter feed (@lilah_sturges) that asks trans folks to reply to a tweet, usually with a silly theme of some kind. They run for several hours and I pick a winner at random. All you need to receive a pizza is a working PayPal account.

You don't have to be following me or retweet anything unless you care to.

I'm not trans but my parent/child/partner is? Can I still enter?

Absolutely! That's not a problem. I adore loving parents of trans kids especially and love the idea of y'all sharing a pizza together!

I won a pizza but I'd rather it go to someone else. Is that ok?

Sure! Feel free to pass it along yourself, or let me know their Twitter handle and I'll take care of it.

I don't like PayPal. Can you use a different app?

I get it. PayPal isn't perfect, and it's difficult to change your name on it, so it deadnames people sometimes. The reason we use it is that it has by far the largest reach of any payment app, and #transpizza is worldwide.

Note that I do not look at the display name when I send the pizzas, so I'll never know your deadname.

I can't/don't want to participate in the theme. Can I still enter?

Yes! For any contest you can simply reply with the pizza emoji or the word "pizza" if you don't feel comfortable with the theme or you find it difficult to respond, or if you just want to. 🍕

Do I have to spend the money on pizza?

No, I'm not the pizza police! But if you do buy a pizza, it would be great if you posted a photo of it on Twitter and tagged me!

I'm in the UK/Canada/other country. Can I participate?

As long as you have PayPal, you can participate. A small amount will be taken out in fees, however.

I have a another question!

Send me a message on twitter and I'll do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
