The B.Steady Project
The B.Steady Project was created by The B.QullecTivE:
The B.QullecTivE, or the Brown Queer & Trans* Empowerment Collective, is a new community organization operating out of the Twin Cities, Minnesota. After beginning The B.Steady Project back in the end of February 2013, we realized that our work could go above and beyond this fundraiser alone. We realized that we could make spaces that people like us truly needed- space to learn, to create, collaborate, vent, and -most importantly- space to just *be*. And that's what we're all about.
The Brown Queer and Trans* Empowerment Collective strives to support the social, organizational, political, economic, educational, spiritual, and creative needs of queer/trans* communities of color in Minnesota.
Our Core Beliefs:
We believe every queer and trans* person of color has the right to safe spaces;
We believe every queer and trans* person of color deserves access to life resources such as housing, employment, education, transportation, healthcare, and creative spaces.
We believe that our struggles are interdependent upon each other. None of our needs can be met without an intersectional approach to supporting our racial, sexual and gender identities;
We believe that empowerment will come through communal organization.

Thank you all for supporting brown queer and trans* communities by donating to this project and The B.QullecTivE!
We reached our goal! and one day early at that!
Shout out to everyone who donated,
Shout out to everyone who couldn't donate but still boosted the project across their networks,
Shout out to our first few donors,
and our last few donors,
And of course everybody in the middle.
And hey, if you're feeling left out, the campaign is still open through tomorrow. Extra money raised will go directly to B.QullecTivE and our next exploits. (think movie nights, community barbeques, and educational workshops)
It would be a damn same to make it this far and not not get any funding.
This is all or nothing. Let's make it count while we still can.
We're halfway to our goal. 7 days left in May and I think we might just pull this off.
Please remember to share this with your friends and family as well. Donating is great, but getting 5 other people to donate is even better.
Beast mode, let's go!
