All welcome. Allies welcome.


► LOST IN THE CROWD: Daily survival is a constant struggle. This documentary takes up that reality by following a group of trans & queer youth living on the streets of New York, many whom are HIV+, involved in sex work, and survivors of rape, abuse - and family rejection. Individual voices combine to expose how youth face neglect from the societal structures that surround them. These youth speak to their fight to survive in a world hostile to their very existence and to the dreams and desires that keep them going. An emotional look at the pursuit of self re-invention and the hurt of homelessness.

dir.: Susi Graff

► CHANGING HOUSE: Trans lesbian couple, Rusty and Chelsea devoted 15 years to making their Brooklyn home a communal living space for trans women in need. The film traces "Transy House's" roots, growth and unfortunate unsustainability in this intimate look back at its rich activist history.

dir.: Z.A. Martohardjono

► TRANS JANUARY: Through digital storytelling this Toronto-based film talks back to the shelter system and thinks through solidarity. It complicates the cold, coping, community, and care.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
