Two Spirit World Pride NYC
Two-Spirit Indigenous People's Association NYC is a task force organizing to support visiting Indigenous relatives with community and safer spaces during next year's Word Pride 2019 NYC/Stonewall 50. The task force is also organizing its own Indigenous Pride event entitled “Welcome To Our Fire,” during World Pride 2019. TSIPA’s subsequent events include a Two-Spirit dinner the night before the march, scholarships for those in need of assistance to get to NYC – especially for Elders and Youth. A 2nd Two-Spirits and HIV conference – the first was in 1991, and a Two-Spirit breakfast before the march, a Two-Spirit youth led poetry reading event entitled “Don’t Call Me Berdache,” and the hosting of International Two-Spirit title holders from across Turtle Island.
TSIPA expects to serve over 200 Indigenous two-spirit individuals during next June's World Pride. With extremely limited funding, we can only serve our Elders and Youth with your support. Please donate to ensure our two-spirit community has a safe, sober, and honoring space to express our pride during World Pride 2019 NYC.
