BQIC’s membership is only made up of folks who identify as Black and LGBTQ+, but we recognize that everyone has a role in the fight for Black queer & trans liberation. We don’t need non-Black, cis-het “allies” who only pay lip service to our cause but don’t actually risk anything to challenge oppression. We need accomplices–people who don’t identify as Black and LGBTQIA+ who are still actively engaged in efforts to secure Black, queer, trans, and intersex liberation.
Accomplices understand that their liberation is intertwined with ours and join us in our long-term fight against all forms of oppression, especially anti-blackness, transphobia, homophobia. We call on you to support our efforts by volunteering their time, resources, and any other means of support so that we can create lasting change together. To stay in the know about how to support BQIC, join our Accomplice mailing list.
