According to the 2021 Tracking Report published by Funders for LGBTQ Issues, "$78.4 million, 31 percent of overall LGBTQ funding, was allocated to LGBTQ communities of color broadly." However, LGBT Data & Demographics at the Williams Institute stated that 42% of the LGBT community identify as people of color. Despite reporting more racial diversity than the general adult U.S. population, TQBIPOC (Trans and Queer Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) are challenged with disproportionate inequities such as higher rates of unemployment and housing insecurity. Through this conversation, presenters will share how cultural self-determination is a path for racial, gender, and economic justice.

Join J. HD Goodridge (Black Trans Fund), J Mase III (The Black Trans Prayer Book), Omni Romero (Pride Foundation), and Morgan (Mo) Willis (Third Wave Fund) on Tuesday, June 18th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT to explore the intricate intersections of queer liberation and racial equity, and unveil actionable strategies for funders to uplift TQBIPOC artists and creatives.

This 60-minute webinar will include an audience Q&A with the speakers.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Live captioning will be available in English throughout the webinar. For additional accommodation requests, please contact GIA Program Manager Jaime Sharp,, at least three (3) business days before the event.
