Help GLITS Sign A Lease and Buy Property in NYC for Black Trans Community!

w Robin H.

Edit: As of Sunday June 14, GLITS was up to $850,000 of $1,000,000 goal to fund renting apartments and buying 2 buildings for Black Trans community in NYC. Updated my personal fundraising page from $1000 to $2000. Let's go! And thank you to everyone who has already donated.

Over the course of the last few months, GLITS Inc.— a NYC-based non-profit— has been housing five people in an apartment in Manhattan. However, we have been presented with the opportunity to sign a one-year lease on the apartment, providing much needed security and housing stability for five Black trans members of our community, all of whom were recently released from Rikers amidst the COVID pandemic and systemic racism that still plagues our communities.

We believe in the livelihood of Black trans people and the importance of thriving, not just surviving!

We want Black trans folks to live a life filled with opportunities of joy that many of us take for granted when our existence is not defined by perseverance. This is what GLITS Inc. wants to provide for trans folk through this lease. We see this as a deep revolutionary obligation to all those who believe in joy and liberation. This lease will allow Black trans folk to focus on other long term goals like education and mental health, as well as an overall feeling of support and stability during this unsettling time.

This apartment will act as a hub to support Black trans livelihood. This effort is led by Black trans folk giving back to their community and prioritizing the safety of Black trans women.

Please share with fervor to your networks near and far.

With love and solidarity <3

Edit:
Glits received such an outpouring support within the last few days, they have raised their fundraiser goal to $1,000,000 to be able to buy 2 buildings in NYC to provide housing for Black trans people, provide programming, and hire more staff!!!!! (originally was just looking to pay off a yearly lease)

Thanks for helping me raise money for this important organization so we can help the Black trans community thrive!
