Learning and Listening to the 2SLGBTQ+ Community
To be an active ally you need to be open to learning and listening to the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Here are three queer and trans activists to follow:
- Monico Forrester is an activist and community worker. She works to promote awareness and visibility of trans folks. She is an advocate for allowing trans women into women’s shelters and in creating policies to prevent discrimination against trans women.
- Kiley May is an artist, activist, and community organizer. She is a two-spirit Indigenous trans artist, filmmaker, actor, screenwriter, writer, and filmmaker.
- Country McFarlane is a visual artist, poet, and community worker. He is a founding member of many Black queer groups and organizations. His work in the ‘80s and ‘90s build the foundation for addressing Black LGBTQ+ communities today.
