Organizations and groups that are not necessarily LGBTQ+ focused, but are led by queer and trans BIPOC who are leading inherently from an intersectional perspective. (they understand that because of racism queer and trans folks of color may not have found space within the larger LGBTQ+ movement to do this work. As part of Pride Foundation’s racial equity work, they recognize the importance of expanding how LGBTQ+ advocacy and movement building looks in communities of color.)
Smaller, grassroots, and who don’t have access to mainstream funding sources, especially organizations and groups that are focusing on issues that are impacting LGBTQ+ folks at the intersection of social identities, including work that is focused on:
Supporting and decriminalizing sex workers
Incarceration/criminal injustice and restorative justice
Healing Justice
Disability Justice
Housing and homelessness
Senior and elder support
Youth support (particularly BIPOC youth and/or youth in rural communities)
Supporting people living with HIV/AIDS
Working to develop policy on behalf of, and led by, QTBIPOC

Climate justice
