NC Queer TROUBLMakers (Trans Revolutionaries Organizing Under Black Lives Matter) is a statewide collective of queer and trans people of color in North Carolina. We began formally working together in August of 2015, coordinating Queer and Trans Black Lives Matter demonstrations at Pride events across the state.
Since then, we have organized and led the demonstrations and organizing against HB 2, and have held QTPOC (queer and trans people of color) Town Halls in more than three cities in North Carolina.
We have been werking hard, fighting for our liberation, but almost every single one of the trans people in our collective cannot afford to pay their rent and basic living expenses. We are taking a collection to help raise emergency funds to help our family pay their immediate living expenses, and to help fund paid positions to sustain our community.
