The GenderInc studio envisions a more just city where LGBTQ people of all races and cultures experience safety in mind and body in public spaces. We believe that policy and design interventions focused on the urgent need for ending violence against and harassment of transgender and gender nonconforming (GNC) people will effect policy and cultural changes that result in a safer city for all New Yorkers.


Our mission is to make New York City a national leader in addressing gender-based violence and harassment on multiple levels. We will elevate LGBTQ safety and equity in public spaces through a combination of formal and informal actions that engage all levels of government, facilitate coalition building, encourage allyship initiatives, launch advocacy campaigns, and propose design interventions.
