Thank you to everyone who came out to the So to Speak reading in support of  The Trans Women of Color Collective. Thank you to those of you who couldn’t make it to the event, but still supported by donating online. Thank you, most importantly, TWOCC/ Lourdes Ashley Hunter, for the incredible & necessary work that you do. And thank you dearly to our too-good-to-be-true line up of readers: Aaron Coleman,  Zeina Hashem Beck,  Oliver Baez Bendorf,  Eleadah Elle Clack, &  Armani Dae!

With everyone’s support we raised a tremendous amount of funding for the TWOCC. If you want to help support the work of this grass-roots organization, please visit their  website for more information.
