Grooby believes in the giving back to the LGBTQ community and works in and outside of the adult industry to support our performers and destigmatize desire.

Non-Profit Organization

Grooby, along with Buck Angel, created TAIF (Trans Adult Industry Foundation, Inc.) to raise money, by fundraising and corporate sponsorships, to distribute funds directly to charitable organizations that provide life-affirming support services to the transgender population. This includes, but is not limited to, groups who work in housing, call centers, emergency shelters, and advocacy. The intention of TAIF is to provide resources to trans people, with a specific focus on the needs of the performers in our community.
