Notes

"Queer Appalachia is an artist collective. Anyone is welcome at our table regardless of addiction status, mental health, socioeconomic status, identity, race or how "out" you are. When we use hashtags like #nooneisdisposable, it's not marketing or branding. We invite anyone to work along side us. For far too long, depictions of these regions have been white-washed and have made invisible the communities of color that live and struggle alongside us. We acknowledge the necessity for our work to not emulate these patterns and seek that both the project and its contributors accurately and appropriately reflect our diverse community."
Projects and Efforts Include: Harm Reduction; Transformative Justice; 'Electric Dirt' (magazine celebrating Queer voices and identities from Appalachia and the South); Community SOS & Rapid Response Funding; monthly Spotify playlist. Continuously evolving, so check website for new projects and efforts.

"CULTIVATING SPACE, COMMUNITY, CONVERSATIONS AND CHANGE FOR A MORE EQUITABLE AND ACCESSIBLE WELLNESS INDUSTRY."
"In 2019 we made the transition to only use imagery that reflected the identity of our members — BIPOC, LGBTQA+, and differently bodied people. But representation in media is more than just imagery; it's about providing the opportunity to tell their own stories by amplifying their messages. So we started two new feature series on holisticism — a monthly colun with Jordi (a community member of DIW), and a monthly feature on BIPOC or LGBTQA+ healer/practitioner. We instituted a company-wide inclusion rider, meaning if we are ever invited to an opportunity to be a speaker, podcast host, subject of a fewature, etc., an equal or higher value opportunity must be pitched to a BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ wellness expert, too. We also launched a scholarship and support series for all people who cannot afford our monthly membership."

This Instructors Manual is intended to help people "who provide services to Two-Spirits in our communities who are learning how to provide better, holistic service. We believe that this multi-module curriculum will help those who face similar dilemmas, empower our allies to become proactive in addressing homophobia in our communities and empower Two-Spirit people to stand tall. We hope that this will help
you in working with your communities."

Notes

"A camp where LGBTQ youth create music, discover themselves, and have fun."
"By empowering Southern queer youth and building community through music and the arts, QORDS is a vehicle for expressing gender and sexuality, and harbors an environment of self-discovery and social change."
"We are committed to promoting the creativity, affirmation, leadership, abundance and voices of Southern queer youth. We recognize that gender and sexuality are multidimensional concepts that intersect with issues including, but not limited to: institutions, race, class, heritage, ability, documentation status, language, or spirituality. We aim to cultivate intersectional spaces and claim music and arts as a vehicle of queer empowerment."
