Mission & Vision: PROMO is Missouri’s statewide LGBTQ advocacy organization. Trans-inclusion has always been a focus of PROMO’s work, and all of our work will continue to be trans-inclusive, from ensuring that gender identity is a core part of nondiscrimination ordinances and laws, in addition to sexual orientation, to training hospital staff and agencies on the entire LGBTQ community. 

Beyond trans-inclusion, PROMO continues to be dedicated to finding and creating opportunities to better the lives specifically of transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary Missourians. From working to make it easier to change your name and gender marker, to ending trans exclusions in healthcare, to educating shelters and facilities on how to welcome and care for transgender individuals and families, PROMO is committed.

​Our work at PROMO is all through a lens of making LGBTQ lives better through education and changes in policies and law. Many of the opportunities we see in Missouri are through administrative changes, through the Governor’s office, or individual agencies. This website is through that same lens, dedicated to helping transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary Missourians understand the law. This site includes game-changing policies and laws that have already been changed, as well as those we see as short-term opportunities for change, in order to make a difference in our daily lives. ​

Thank you to the organizations and individuals doing this work and offering support to transgender Missourians alongside us. We are grateful for your work and your partnership.
