Susan Maasch is the founder of the Trans Youth Equality Foundation which was established in 2007. Her office is in Portland Maine and advocates for transgender and non binary children and youth in Maine and beyond in their schools, communities, faith communities and homes. She co directed this foundation with good friend Jack Montgomery, a lawyer who cares about civil and human rights and as a fine art photographer told the stories of many trans people and children through his powerful portrait works. Together they built a foundation that was one of the first in our country and still going strong.
