Save Our Sons & Brothers
Uniting Trans Men of Color
Uniting Our Brothers Uplifting Our Brothers
S.O.S.B. is a Houston-based network for transmen of color that provides a space for us to share experiences, resources and exist as our most authentic selves.
What is SOSB About?
We bring together
to build each other up.
SOSU helped me get my name and gender marker changed after I had been struggling for a year to do so on my own. The women who run SOSU went out of their way to see that I have the right name on all my documents so I could have an easier time just going about my life. Now that I’m working with them I’m learning they do so much more and hopefully SOSB can expand our work even further.
Thanks to SOSU, I've been given a second chance at having a family that embraces my spirit, celebrates my accomplishments, stands by me during hardship, values my input and checks on me when I'm away or don't seem like myself. In addition, I am infinitely grateful that SOSU led me to the brotherhood of SOSB, because now I know what it feels like to belong somewhere and to be truly accounted for. As a family, we are a light for one another in the dark, and now that I've experienced being part of SOSU and SOSB, I want everyone to have access to their own light- especially trans individuals of color.
The force that drives us
With a holistic view, we look to empower our trans sons and brothers of color by addressing the social, emotional, financial, physical and medical needs of our community.
