Rizi Timane Annual Transgender Grant

Armed with his life experiences and a keen desire to support his LGBT community, Rizi founded The Happy Transgender Center in 2012 to provide much-needed support to trans individuals and their families during the transition process.

In working with the trans community, Rizi has encountered many trans youth and adults who desire gender re-assignment surgery, but cannot afford it.  As a response to this truly heartbreaking situation, Rizi established the Rizi Timane Annual Transgender Surgery Scholarship in 2014, which provides financial support to others as they transition.  The Scholarship is funded exclusively with a portion of proceeds from his music and book sales.  To date, five trans surgeries have been funded through the scholarship, with hopes of many more to come.
