On January 13th, 2016, the world lost our beloved Bryn Kelly.

Bryn was so many things to so many people: a writer, a musician, an actress, an educator, a stylist, a tarot reader, and a justice fighter for the rights of trans people, people of color, people living with HIV/AIDS, poor and working class folks, women, and so many others. Bryn was a dear friend to many, and an inspiration to us all. She was brilliant and hilarious, complex and caring. She loved her community and wanted us to love each other well.

Bryn's memorial will be held on Saturday February 6th at St John the Divine. The memorial is now fully funded; ALL additional funds raised now will go to  a scholarship for trans women and a NY based housing justice organization.

Thank you again, everyone who generously gave their money and time to making Bryn's memorial events happen this weekend. We are still tallying the final costs, but wanted to announce that a substantial portion of the remainder will go to BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK.

BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK: Documenting Brooklyn - Fighting Gentrification (B4G) is a neighborhood and web-based response to the crisis of gentrification of Brooklyn, NY. Our main goals is to 1. to keep Brooklyn residents in their homes through our direct action and grassroots organizing “No Eviction Zones” campaign and 2. to launch an anti-gentrification website hub, that will serve as a documentary archive as well as provide vital legal, housing and community organizing resources.

BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK: Documenting Brooklyn - Fighting Gentrification (B4G) is a Brooklyn-wide project of Equality for Flatbush, a new people of color-led, multi-national grassroots organization that does anti-police repression, affordable housing and anti-gentrification organizing in the Flatbush and East Flatbush communities of Brooklyn, NY. Ultimately our 2 goals are to prevent NYPD murders and to stop the displacement of low to middle income people from our community.

​To get involved, if you're experiencing harassment, or in need of housing or legal organizing resources, contact flatbushequality@gmail.com or call / text (646) 820-6039 / En Español (513) 445-8532 / En Kréyol (707) 200-3692

Thank you again to everyone who's been so generous. <3 We also wanted to let everyone know that a memorial fund in Bryn's name has been created at Lambda Literary:

http://lambdaliterary.donorpages.com/BrynKellyScholarshipFund/BrynKellyScholarship/

"The Bryn Kelly Scholarship for Trans Women/Trans Femme Writers at the Lambda Literary Retreat honors the life and artistic work of Bryn Kelly, a 2013 LLF Emerging Writer Workshop participant. Bryn, a much loved writer and performer, created innovative work that was smart, sharp, daring, and from the perspective of an HIV-positive trans woman. The scholarship will support one Emerging Writer Workshop participant towards tuition, room & board, and travel costs to and from the workshop."
