*“Pose” actress Indya Moore has launched a new campaign that aims to bring the spirit of Santa Claus with transgender youth this Christmas.

As reported by PEOPLE, Moore’s new social media campaign called TranSanta seeks to connect generous people with transgender kids who are homeless, in foster care or who are generally at-risk, who won’t receive presents this holiday season. 

“For the holidays, we want to show trans young people that they are loved, supported and have a family around the country and world of people who will care for them,” Moore said in a statement. “We are transing Santa — join us! Transness is so beautiful and we are celebrating our magic.”

The TranSanta Instagram page currently features letters and wish lists of dozens of transgender youths. 

Moore has also helped raise money for trans youth during the coronavirus pandemic through Cash App, and donations were redistributed to trans people of color.

“I think it’s important to take direct action and think about these things when we’re living in a world that universally ostracizes trans people in every possible way,” Moore said.

You can read some of the TranSanta letters below.
