Adam Lambert and his Feel Something Foundation have teamed up with the Center for Gender-Affirming Care, based in his hometown of San Diego, for a new fundraising initiative.
Fans can make a donation which enters them into an opportunity drawing to win an exciting prize. Money raised from the draw will go towards the Center for Gender-Affirming Care’s mission to provide comprehensive, compassionate, evidence based care and support to transgender and non-binary youth and their families.
Donations will be used to support pubertal suppression, gender-affirming hormone therapy, referrals to reproductive health and surgical specialists, assistance with legal name change, ongoing mental health support, and much more.
The center, which is part of Rady’s Children Hospital, offers a safe medical home for young people as it understands how gender dysphoria impacts one’s feeling of safety and comfort in a medical environment.
Prizes on offer include a recorded message from Adam (one available), a 30 minute Q&A with Adam (four available) or a 20 minute one-on-one video call with Adam (one available). You can enter the draw by donating here, whilst October 31 will be the last day to donate to be entered into the opportunity drawing.
Speaking about the Feel Something Foundation’s latest mission, Adam said: “I’m so inspired by the work the staff at Rady Children’s Center for Gender-Affirming Care are doing for these young people and their families. We need more centers like this across the globe and further education on trans-health care within medical teaching.
“We’re in a new era with this conversation and a lot of young people are finding their true identity much earlier now; it’s beautiful to see these young people loving their identity and being their amazing selves. I’m so proud they’re from my hometown and I’m so glad the Feel Something Foundation can help to support the continued success of the center.”
The family of a patient at the center added: “Gender-affirming care allows our son to thrive and be his confident, authentic self. We are so grateful to organizations like the Feel Something Foundation, who are truly saving young lives through their generous contributions to Rady Children’s Center for Gender-Affirming Care.”
