Going Coastal: trans teen Mindy raises funds for GMA

March is PRIDE month in the Wellington region, and our friend Mindy, age 14, is #GoingCoastal on a 160km walk from Castlepoint to Kāpiti, together with her mum Kylie. She is aiming to raise funds for GMA to support other young trans people, especially those who might not have an amazingly supportive family like hers.

You can follow Mindy’s journey with the hashtag #GoingCoastal on Twitter, and make donations to GMA by bank transfer, credit card, or PayPal, with the reference GoingCoastal.

This is Mindy’s second walk to fundraise for GMA – in 2019 when she was 12 she raised over $1,400 with #MindysWalk from Carterton to Kaitoke, which you can read about here and here and in the news here.

Huge thanks to Mindy and her family, and to everyone supporting young trans people to thrive.
