We back tonight !!!!!! 🥰🥰 #queeringthequarantine !! During these times of scary uncertainty it’s important to keep your head afloat by any means ✊ so come on over and take a listen to your hosts on @whcsradio at 8pm LIVE from their homes and into yours ‼️ #livepodcast #liveradio #queersontheradio #whcs #queersofinstagram


In the beginning of March we launched our 6th season strong ! Due to the pandemic we were forced to stop all live shows and our studio needless to say its been a tough few weeks . The uncertainty not only of our show but our lives has left anxiety and depression in its wake as a community as well as our individual lives.

During this time we have also lost a lot of folks in community including the unforgettable Lorena Borjas Trans Mother to many, fighter and activist.... may she rest in power and her legacy out live all of us! ✊

But there is a small light at the end of this tunnel at least in a very small scale. We are coming back on air ! It is because of the incredible efforts of the folks at WHCS that we are able to come back LIVE on the air as we do our show remotely.

Join us this Thursday night 8pm, for a very humble episode of Rainbow Notes NYC with hosts Gabriel and Jules as we try to navigate this new norm.

Peace and Love,
Jules and Gabriel

More of this, please! "Named Dandarah (after Dandara don Santos, a Brazilian trans woman who was murdered in 2017), the app works by presenting user-generated maps of major Brazilian cities, showing locations where trans women typically congregate. Users can then communicate with one another in real-time regarding violence on the ground. They can also use a panic button to immediately reach five emergency contacts as well as emergency services." #ReclaimPride

Rest in Peace and Power Alexa
Alexa, 28, was a homeless Puerto Rican black trans woman. Last Sunday night, February 23rd, Alexa was falsely accused of using women's bathrooms to prey on young girls with a hand mirror she used to protect herself from people that could potentially be following her. The accusation, bluntly claiming that a ”man in a dress” was a threat to all children in Puerto Rico, went viral - flooding the Internet with explicit transphobia along images of her being persecuted. That very night, in the early hours of the 24th, a video of Alexa being harassed by men, and then shot to death, was posted on social media. This is a brutal example of what the combination of transphobia, online bullying, and gun violence can lead to. We must do everything possible to prevent hate crimes such as this. -
In the following days, details of Alexa's life have surfaced: she was abandoned by her family, sexually abused by her father, and had NO history of being a criminal. Messages she left on bathroom mirrors give us a glimpse of her inner life: ”I always wanted to travel. Not like this.” ”Never abandon, or physically and emotionally mistreat your children, please.” ”Stop! I am pretty and feminine enough for you, motherf**kers. Don't please this sh*t society, please yourself.” ”Don't just buy me food. Speak to me. Give me love and warmth. The girl in black in the wandering mini-skirt.” It is clear to me that Alexa was a deeply beautiful human being, an artist, and had infinite potential. Let us honor and empower trans women, black women, non-binary femmes, poor people, homeless people, and neurodiverse people in Life, so we NEVER again have to honor and lift them up only after they are no longer with us. I am convinced it is the key to balance in our societies. Please listen to us before it is too late.

We are in the process of signing our FIRST commercial lease! Yes our folks are finally going to have a black trans political home here in NYC. We are opening the only brick and mortar Black TGNC specific organizing and arts space here in Bedstuy Brooklyn where our Co-Director Olympia Sudan grew up. We cannot wait to announce the launch party, programming schedule, and upcoming events.

The biggest shout out to folks who believe in us, especially the New York Womens Foundation who support our autonomous black TGNC youth and community organizing and who funded our request to open up space. We could not have done this without yall investing in our leadership, thank you everyone over at NYWF! Stay tuned!

Transgender professor at Kingsborough College sues school over gender discrimination

This happened to our dear mentor and friend Red Washburn. They’re fighting back against discrimination, and we all benefit when someone is as courageous as they are. They are truly one of the most caring and knowledgeable professors we had. Any college would be lucky to have them. Please share.

Red Washburn, who uses they/them pronouns and has taught English and Women and Gender Studies at the CUNY Brooklyn community college since 2011, alleges in a Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit filed Friday that the school began discriminating against them in 2017 when they came out as transgender.

Black Trans Media

Black Trans Media

We are thrilled to announce Black Trans Media is launching Space to Be Mutual Aid Support for Black Trans Women navigating sex work. Every month for the next 12 months $500 will go directly to a black trans women navigating sex work to support housing costs making sure there is Space to Be.

The leadership and decision making behind this project is led by black trans women who navigate/d sex work. The money was generously donated by a black cis woman ally who is a sex worker and cares deeply about our communities.

We are also working with amazing black trans women led organizations like GLITS that directly organize and support black trans sex workers. And we will be working with folks who want to share and document their narratives too #spaceistheplace

Please share the application link- the first person will be funded next week! Stay tuned to learn more about how this mutual aid support emerged, the generous ally behind the donation, and updates from our team.


Black Trans Media

Black Trans Media

Black Trans Media spent the last 4 days in Las Vegas for Black Girlz Rulez (BGR) a convening led by Trans Gender Variant Justice Project (TGIJP) that centers the leadership of black trans women, while also making critical space for black trans men and non binary people, from across the U.S with a focus on the South and Midwest. Thru this convening TGIJP invests holistically into black trans leaders, and this year over 50 black TGNC leaders from dozens of organizations were able to build connections, strengthen leadership skills and develop black trans strategy. We had sessions on reproductive justice, violence, and how to build and sustain grassroots black trans organizations.

More highlights to come!

Happy birthday to the brontosaurus and gay rights activist and photographer Kay Lahusen!

Thanks to Kay (also known as Kay Tobin), many key moments in the gay rights revolution live on in photographs. From the Reminder Day demonstrations in Philadelphia in the late 1960s, to the panel discussion at the 1973 American Psychiatric Association featuring Dr. Henry Anonymous, and so many more. Along with her partner, Barbara Gittings, Kay worked to demolish the belief that homosexuals were, by nature, mentally ill (they stormed into this battle with fellow activist Frank Kameny by their sides). Our eternal thanks to you, Kay! #makinggayhistory

“We were dinosaurs in a way, but we were good dinosaurs. Every movement has people who you can call dinosaurs because they started in the old days. But if you started in the early days, so what?”
