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."

"The Black Stripe represents the cooperative effort of Same Gender Loving (SGL) "Queers": Lesbians, Gay men, Bisexuals and Transgendered people of African Descent. It was inspired by discussions on GLBPOC and Sistahnet.
As gays and lesbians of African Descent, we claim and are claimed by two communities--the black community and the gay community. Neither community fully accepts, appreciates or understands us."

"If you're a member of the (heterosexual) black community or the (white) gay community, or any other community, welcome. Explore, experience and learn. If you're a same gender loving person of African Descent; welcome home."

The site is somewhat dated, but includes links to useful resources, including articles, film and movie lists, notable individuals, and discussion boards.
