“It’s important for me to #ShareBlackStories because I don’t feel that positive Black stories get shared enough!” says drag artist, performer and advocate Shea Couleé. “I feel like in 2020, celebrating my Blackness is just being unapologetic in my Blackness.” - Shea came up in the Chicago drag scene and even competed on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” “It’s fun to be able to go and create your own persona and your own rules and your own world onstage for three to five minutes,” says Shea. “I am a Black, gay drag queen who makes my living doing what I love,” says Shea.

#29DaysofQueerExcellence Meet: @asanniarmon, Founder of @ForTheGworls . . . I am the founder of For The Gworls (@ForTheGworls), a collective that helps BLACK transgender people pay their rent and gender-affirming surgeries. We help Black trans people obtain these bare necessities through two methods: (1) by bringing the community together to fundraise through rent parties (2) using our burgeoning social media presence to crowdfund for Black transgender people that reach out to us with an immediate need. Over the last 6 months, we've helped raise over $28,000 for Black transgender folks in need. For The Gworls began as a means of helping two Black, transgender women and femmes that we knew faced eviction if they didn’t raise money for their rent. I decided to host a party on the 4th of July where all proceeds would go towards their housing, and in less than three days, I was able to exceed this goal. It was then that I decided to make this an official monthly gathering! My goal is to create space, pay for housing, and help fund gender-affirming surgeries; as these are a reality for a large part of our community. I've recently started using our growing social media platform to crowdfund for those who need immediate assistance. In this way, we can help anywhere between 4-16 people a month, as opposed to 1-3 people with just one party. Please feel free to follow us on @ForTheGworls (on Instagram) and @4TheGworls (on Twitter) to plug-in. This work is important because we put money directly into the hands of Black transgender people to make sure they remain housed. We don't deal with bureaucracy; we simply fundraise and make sure our community stays off the street. #BETQueerAF . . . Photography by: @jocelyn_prescod Makeup by: @fabfacesbyaigner
