Why did you join BTF’s Advisory Committee?
“Although Black trans people are some of the world’s most valuable contributors to multi-billion-dollar industries across the world– from fashion, to literature, entertainment, academia, beauty and so much more…that wealth is not reflected in our communities. I decided to join the advisory board of the Black Trans Fund to uplift and resource organizations whose work will help bring about the long overdue justice and equity for us all!”
