A safe space for Black LGBTQ+ people who want to just exist and also talk about how we navigate our sexuality, gender identity and expression while being Black

Notes from the Spaces team

We created this community to provide a safe and supportive platform for Black LGBTQ+ individuals to connect, share experiences, and build meaningful relationships. Our online space is designed to be inclusive and welcoming to all Black queer people, regardless of gender identity, or sexual orientation. Here, you'll find a supportive community that understands the unique challenges and experiences faced by Black LGBTQ+ individuals. We believe that our online space is more than just a platform - it's a community of like-minded individuals who are committed to creating a better world for Black queer people. We strive to be a space that promotes positivity, inclusivity, and mutual respect. It's important to recognize and celebrate the beauty and resilience of Black LGBTQ+ people. Despite the challenges, Black LGBTQ+ people have made significant contributions to society and have played a pivotal role in the fight for civil rights and LGBTQ+ rights. So if you're a Black queer person looking for a supportive online community, we invite you to join us! Surrounding yourself with people who understand your experiences can provide a sense of validation, support, and empowerment. We're excited to get to know you and to create a space where you can be your true, authentic self. "Black LGBTQ+" refers to individuals who identify as both Black/African American and as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. This is an intersectional identity that recognizes the unique challenges and experiences faced by Black people who are also members of the LGBTQ+ community. Black LGBTQ individuals face a range of challenges, including discrimination and prejudice based on both their race and sexual orientation or gender identity. This can include facing higher rates of violence, harassment, and poverty, as well as being marginalized and excluded within both Black and LGBTQ+ communities. However, Black LGBTQ people also have a rich history of activism and resilience, fighting for their rights and visibility within both communities. This includes leaders like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, who were instrumental in the Stonewall uprising and the early gay rights movement, as well as contemporary activists like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox, who have brought visibility and awareness to issues facing Black trans women. Overall, it's important to recognize and support the unique experiences and perspectives of Black LGBTQ individuals, and work towards creating a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

What you can see in this Space

I’ve done a bit of house cleaning because I’ve noticed some people who clearly aren’t black have joined the space. I understand some people may feel like they’re allies or whatever but spaces exclusively for black queer people are needed for us to actually be ourselves and breathe. Please be respectful to that x
Not really exciting, but I do have a busy week. Training a sales team and working on marketing for an upcoming project.
Stressful and exciting. I'm in game dev, and Friday is our vertical slice beta deadline.
