2009 Directory of LGBTQ People of Color Organizations and Projects in the U.S.
January 2009 | Funders for LGBTQ Issues
“Supporting LGBTQ people of color organizations and projects has a strategic, smart and moral rationale. Our movements need strong, financially secure groups equipped to tackle injustice across communities and issues. Further, we all benefit from strategic, sustainable alliances that work across movements (modeled by LGBTQ people of color groups) as well as from a democratic civic discourse that includes the perspectives of LGBTQ people of color. And racism, like the other inequities of our time, still needs addressing—we can all play a role.”
This directory includes two types of efforts: 1. Autonomous LGBT People of Color Organizations, which are led by and for LGBTQ people of color as reflected in their missions, staffing and programs. 2. Programs and Projects for LGBTQ People of Color, which are housed in broader-themed organizations, typically people of color, LGBTQ or HIV/AIDS organizations.
