Trans United is a left-of-center advocacy group for other pro-transgender organizations. It also endorses transgender-movement-aligned legislation and legislation to promote prostitution and other forms of “sex work.” Trans United has condemned left of-center transgender-interest groups which advocate for similar issues for insufficient commitment to intersectional left-progressivism.
Criticism of LGBT-Interest Groups
On March 6, 2020, Trans United signed a letter calling for the resignation of the leader of the Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation. The letter condemned chairman Frits Huffnagel for acknowledging that some migrants were likely guilty of war crimes. The statement accused Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation of “normalizing” racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. 
In 2019, organizing director Day Pope and executive director Daroneshia Duncan-Boyd signed a letter condemning the transgender-interest group National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE). The statement asserts that NCTE’s internal policies and laws they advocate for cause violence against people who identify as transgender. 
Trans United is a member of Sex Worker Advocates Coalition, which endorsed a bill that would decriminalize prostitution in Washington, D.C. The bill failed, although a similar measure was proposed by the organization Decriminalize Sex Work. Trans United Fund opposed Decriminalize Sex Work’s ballot measure due to, among other issues, the organization being “a mostly white male, cisgender dominated organization”. On March 3, 2020, Decriminalize Sex Work announced its withdrawal of the ballot measure in response to pressure from the Sex Worker Advocates Coalition.  
Organizing director Day Pope stated that transgender people have endured an increase in death threats because of President Donald Trump. 
On November 5, 2016, Trans United held a press conference in Raleigh, North Carolina in opposition to HB2, a bill to reverse a decision permitting people to choose restrooms based on “gender identity.”
