Abstract:     
Transpolitics are gaining visibility and momentum, and increasingly trans activists are forming projects and organizations focused on promoting political change. Given this context, this article examines how critiques of the nonprofit industrial complex might be incorporated into trans political analysis and how they could inform this moment of trans political institutionalization. Taking tools and lessons from antiracist and feminist scholars and activists and recognizing the widespread critique of the neoliberal co-optation of the gay and lesbian rights movement, this article highlights alternatives to traditional nonprofit structures. The authors provide an in-depth look at one trans legal organization that operates with a collective governance model and centralizes the leadership of trans people of color, offering it as a potential model for emerging trans organizations.
