If you are black person of trans experience, non conforming, non binary, queer as fuck, gay as fuck, a boi, bi as fuck, a butch queen, a femme queen, a stud, trans-masculine, trans male identified, or any other identities along the trans spectrum this WEEK is for you!
SNaP 4 Freedom Week is a week of Atlanta trans and queer magic, showcasing trans leadership all around the city and making space for our creative expressions of transformative healing and art. In recognition of Trans Day of Visibility 2018, we are hosting a benefit show at the Legendary Marquette to raise awareness and financial support for SNaP Co’s Taking Care of Our Own Fund to get much needed concrete resources (as in: cash money!) to our many members in need of basics like emergency housing support, bail, prescriptions, and funds to bury loved ones.
SNaP Co believes that in order for our people, black trans people in particular, to show up to activate movement, we must support their everyday survival needs. How can they join us at Atlanta City Hall (such as this year when we won the decriminalization of marijuana or ending cash bail) when they are sleeping on couches or having to engage in survival sex work to secure another night for a hotel room?How can we take over the streets of Atlanta (like we did in the March 4 The Gurlz this year), demanding an end to the killing of Black trans women, when we cant afford access to medical care like hormones or surgery. Your financial donations, love, and support at our events will help us toward our goal!
