Have you watched this yet? It’s about our group called Bois of Baltimore. We are changing our city and will eventually change the country. We’re not a non-profit, we don’t have a sponsor, we’re a group of people working together to create safe spaces for queer people of color. This stands a pretty good chance of getting lost between the high resolution pictures of beautiful people in stylish clothes, hilarious gifs, and Beyonce, but we’re going to keep sharing.
What other group of queer people of color do you know that are aiming to operate outside of the matrix? Raise funds on their own instead of taking dollars from the same corporations that are destroying our communities? Intentionally support queer and POC owned businesses?
You still reading? Wow. Well if you can spare $1 please show some love! We could use it. Here’s where your funds go. Our campaign goals are pretty simple:
1) secure a physical headquarters
2) execute a mentoring program for young bois (Big Bois, Little Bois) and an artist residency program
3) expand to other cities (by request— we ONLY go where we’re invited)
4) sustainability (for emergencies only)
