A Queer Pride June 1st statement:

Like many of you, we spent this spring in anticipation the rainbows and celebrations, and a welcome distraction from the stress of COVID-19.

However, this weekend’s nationwide protests have made it clear we, as the LGBTQ community, have failed our black siblings. While black communities have cried out against the police brutality and discrimination that they suffer on a daily basis, we have too often not lifted our voices in support of their cause.

This Pride Month, we’re asking you to join us in supporting causes that benefit black communities in our city of Chicago. Each week we will be partnering with friends of A Queer Pride to boost organizations addressing the evolving needs of black people in this time.

While performers and artists will still need to continue with shows in order to survive, we’re asking our fellow promoters to rethink not just their social media presence, but how their events and profits can uplift and support black artists and communities going forward.

Please share widely and donate generously.

We will continue to stay up to date on which organizations are in most need of our support.

Update #1

To kick off Pride month, we launched a flash fundraiser series called "There Is No Pride Without Justice" aimed to support Black organizations in Chicago by raising $5000 each week in June.
Due to your overwhelming support we reached that goal in a brief 24 hours.

The fight doesn't end here. Moving forward we will work in phases, with each phase set to raise $5000 to uplift and support the black community and their evolving needs. We’re excited to see how many of these phases we can complete together this month.

ROUND 2: Donations sent to Round 2 of our Fundly will be split among:

Trans Justice Funding Project (@transjusticefp)
Black, brown and indigenous-led organization which provides grants and resources to black trans individuals and organizations nationwide to increase black trans leadership.

Greater Chicago Food Depository (@fooddepository)
Providing food for hungry people as a hub for more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and programs in Cook County. This is vital work as COVID-19 and the city’s response to protests continue to shut down access and services.

Black Youth Project (@byp100)
Chicago-based national organization of black youth activists creating justice and freedom for all black people. Their work includes “She Safe, We Safe” - a transformative movement to put an end to the different forms of gender violence that black women, girls, femmes and gender non-conforming people face everyday.

Thank you!
