About the Black Trans & Queer Space
GSA Network’s Black Trans and Queer Space is a 6-month initiative centering the expertise and leadership of Black Trans and Queer youth who are organizing toward our liberated future, free from the violence toward Black and Trans folk while creating an environment for living as our authentic selves.
Selected participants will work together to strengthen organizing and leadership skills while holding important conversations about the experiences and demands of our community. Selected participants will be eligible to apply for a quarterly educational award of up to $300 in June and September for a full amount of $600.
All young, Black transgender and Black non-binary activists who are 13-20 years old are encouraged to apply. Participants should expect 5-8 hours of programming each month, including workshops, meeting on a biweekly basis, and programming events. We will also be offering text/chat-based communication to keep in touch and check-in.
