Every year since our founding in 2020, we amplify, celebrate and protect Black LGBTQIA+ lives, particularly illuminating the power of Black femme, Trans and Non-Binary leadership. This event inspires and emboldens consistent anti-racist action while bringing the community together for a SICKENING, joyful, and safe celebration of PRIDE!

In 2020 we partnered with HeadCount, The Okra Project, Broadway Serves, GMHC, St. Luke’s Church (our host for HIV testing) and several other organizations to gather in Times Square to protesting the “Walking While Trans” law. We were joined by notable Black an queer artists and hundreds of community members who marched down with us on 7th avenue to the historic Stonewall Inn, where we concluded with reflective words and a moment of silence honoring the lives of our Black Trans siblings senselessly taken by the hands of racial injustice and transphobia.
In 2021, we accomplished our mission of bringing a joyous resistance and key resources to our community as we centered and honored our Black LGBTQ+ siblings’ with a healing program, rally, and featured a Black and Queer marketplace. Thanks to our partners at AVP who provided our staff and volunteers with essential de-escalation and community safety training. We were able to host a program of performances and speeches honoring the Black Trans folks that have led the fight for LGBTQ+ equality and had a powerful set of artists who helped us bring our mission to embolden consistent and urgent action to dismantle white supremacy and save our queer siblings lives.
