This Pride Month, Queerty is highlighting global technology payments company Mastercard as the company expands a card feature that helps solve a very real problem worldwide.

True Name®  empowers trans and non-binary people to display their preferred names (rather than deadnames) on credit, debit, and prepaid cards without the requirement of a legal name change.Mastercard continues to expand True Name® by adding issuing and fintech partners in North America and globally to help ensure cardholders worldwide can leverage their chosen name on their Mastercard cards and embrace who they truly are.

Trans writer Niko Stratis (pictured above) celebrates the initiative (and company) with examples drawn from the everyday life of trans people everywhere.When trans people can’t have their proper name printed on something as simple as a debit card, it creates a constant reminder of a life that’s inauthentic.
