Notes

"SONG envisions a sustainable South that embodies the best of its freedom traditions and works towards the transformation of our economic, social, spiritual, and political relationships. We envision a multi-issue southern justice movement that unites us across class, age, race, ability, gender, immigration status, and sexuality; a movement in which LGBTQ people – poor and working class, immigrant, people of color, rural – take our rightful place as leaders shaping our region’s legacy and future. We are committed to restoring a way of being that recognizes our collective humanity and dependence on the Earth.
MISSION: SONG is a home for LGBTQ liberation across all lines of race, class, abilities, age, culture, gender, and sexuality in the South. We build, sustain, and connect a southern regional base of LBGTQ people in order to transform the region through strategic projects and campaigns developed in response to the current conditions in our communities. SONG builds this movement through leadership development, intersectional analysis, and organizing."
Includes chapters across various Southern US states.

Notes

"The Griffin-Gracy Educational Retreat & Historical Center’s (a.k.a. “House of GG”) mission is to create programs, services, and resources that positively impact the lives, history, and visibility of Transgender, gender-questioning, and gender-nonconforming people. We do this through programs that promote healing justice, resilience, and organizing among our communities, particularly by and for transgender women of color, to remove barriers that inhibit our survival."
"Founded and led by Trans and gender nonconforming people and our allies, we create safe and transformative spaces where members of our community can heal—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—from the trauma arising from generations of transphobia, racism, sexism, poverty, ableism and violence, and nurture them into tomorrow’s leaders. We currently primarily focus on supporting and nurturing the leadership of Transgender women of color living in the U.S. South."

"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."

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."
