Invest in grassroots journalists
Will you help us ensure that when we say black lives matter, we mean all black lives, including LGBTQ+ ones? We’re asking you to support our new, progressive voice for change.
A toxic mix of transphobia and racism means that black trans women are some of the most vulnerable people in the world, dying young, violently and overwhelmingly ignored. Black lesbians and gay men are also at far higher risk of severe or lethal violence. Far less likely to be protected, both by law enforcers — who, just as with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and countless others, are disturbingly often the violators — and by their own families and friends.
Please use your voice to give your tangible support to our vital, progressive and timely platform for addressing all of these issues and more. We need allies, resources and security — and we’re counting on your progressive instincts to support our progressive grassroots journalism. Thank you.
