For a second year, we are working with filmmaker Tourmaline to celebrate diversity and shine a light on the stories and experiences of activists within the queer and trans communities, both locally and nationally. “Nothing More Beautiful” celebrates what Pride means for the community in 2020 – coming together to tell their stories, share their history and stand up for their rights.
Its cast of courageous leaders prove the power of intersectional representation, what it means to show up for others, and the importance of living as your authentic self.
We’re constantly inspired by the LGBTQIA+ community. For their commitment to lifting each other up, for working together as one to fight for a more inclusive world, and for reaching out to those in need. That’s why we’re donating products and financial support to these BIPOC organizations at the frontline of the Covid-19 relief effort:
- Destination Tomorrow – New York
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Destination Tomorrow has created a response fund for assistance with rent payments, utilities, food shortages and transportation for members of the community.
- LGBT Detroit – Detroit
LGBT Detroit supports the community through advocacy, partnership, testifying before local and state legislators, and providing safe gathering spaces.
- Brave Space Alliance – Chicago
Brave Space Alliance is the first Black-led trans-led LGBTQ center located on the South Side of Chicago, dedicated to creating and providing for-us by-us resources, programming and services.
- Trans Latin@ – Los Angeles
The Trans Latin@ Coalition was formed in 2009 to advocate for Trans Latin@s immigrants residing in the US, addressing their unique needs and challenges.
- First Nations Community Health Services – Navajo Nation
First Nations provides workshops, counseling and medical care to Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Native Americans across New Mexico.
