Andre Lancaster's Memorial Campaign

$7,985 of $8,158 goal

Raised by 113 people in 9 months
Created November 1, 2018
Our beloved Andre Alexander Lancaster (1979-2018) has begun his next journey. On November 16th, we will gather to remember and honor his life and be in the presence of others whose lives he touched.

We need the support of our community to make this gathering happen. The memorial will cost $4,658. We hope to raise an additional $3,500, so that we can offer a gift to his family and a small artist grant or scholarship to an artist who embodies Andre's legacy, in Andre’s name.

"I know these stories will change the world, and change the people who are changing the world," Andre told the Daily News in 2009, in reference to Freedom Train Productions, the groundbreaking Black queer theatre company that  Andre founded and directed.

We welcome all of those whose lives were changed by Andre's stories, vision, kindness and love to join us:

...And (not per Gofundme's request), we want to thank you for the incredible generosity and community that you showed in every aspect of making possible what was a beautiful and powerful memorial of Andre Lancaster, including the critical collective resourcing that happened through this campaign. It means so much. Thank you for everything. We will share more photos of the memorial soon. Much love.

Per the request of GoFundMe, I am making the following update. Andre Lancaster was a long-time friend, colleague, comrade and part of my extended chosen family. I am removing funds in my own name, and distributing as reimbursements to all of the people who fronted their personal funds to make Andre's memorial possible (including the space rental, food, decorations, travel for folks coming from far away, the officiator of the memorial, the documentation and video editing, etc.) plus $1,500 which for Andre's family of origin and $2,000 that will be given as a small grant or scholarship to a young artist, in Andre's name.
