PRIDE & Racial Prejudice

What is the injustice we are solving?
We know that the LGBTQ+ community faces oppression on a daily basis, but what about people of color in the community? Aside from the discrimination they face as members of the LGBTQ+ community, these people also have to deal with the effects of racism from within and outside the LGBTQ+ community. We believe that both the general population and the LGBTQ+ community need to become more accepting of racial minorities, and we hope to achieve that through our project.
This project doesn't have any updates to show.

Hi Adara and Ana Paula,

Thanks for posting this project! You're addressing a vital issue--the multiple forms of marginalization LGBTQ+ people of color face, and the ways that racism in the LGBTQ+ community makes that worse. I'm glad you're thinking about ways to address this injustice!

The next step is to take a deep dive into understanding this injustice. Are there people who are directly affected by this issue who you are able to talk to? It's also helpful to talk to people who perpetuate this injustice, as well as people who are already trying to solve it. Once you work to understand the root cause of this injustice, you'll be able to determine a solution that addresses the problem at its root. Here's a toolkit to help you get started:

One other way that you can deepen your knowledge is by research and reading. Here are some great organizations that focus on queer and trans people of color:

And some important blogs and readings about/by rad queer/trans activists of color:

There are so many more out there, too! Let me know if this is helpful, if you'd like more information or leads, and if there are any other ways we can support you. Thank you for your work on this important issue!
