Why we founded Affirm
Our journey to founding Affirm is deeply rooted in our extensive experience supporting thousands of transgender and non-binary individuals, along with their partners, children, and parents. Through this journey, we’ve uncovered a profound truth: education is a powerful tool in combating stigma, fostering quality relationships, and sculpting a world brimming with empathy. These experiences have fuelled our passion. We’ve seen first-hand how knowledge and understanding can bridge gaps and transform perspectives. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to this mission – to spread awareness, nurture empathy, and create an environment where everyone, regardless of their gender or sexual identity, is met with acceptance and support. At Affirm, we believe in the power of education to catalyse positive change, and we’re committed to making this vision a reality.
