Trans Queer Pueblo

As an LGBTQ+ migrant community of color, Trans Queer Pueblo envisions a world where people live in fellowship, free from systems of oppression. It aims to create a fully respected and integrated LGBTQ+ migrant community, where families and individuals are empowered to define their path and make their voices heard. It celebrates diversity, cultivates leadership and creates support cycles in communities.

The organization operates Clínica Liberación, offering free health care for 100 undocumented LGBTQ+ patients, and holds forums to take health advocacy into the community. Its members visit and write letters of support for LGBTQ+ migrants in detention. Their campaigns have liberated more than 15 individuals from immigration detention.

Trans Queer Pueblo holds double coming out forums for undocumented LGBTQ+ immigrants and offers safe spaces for families to come out of the closet as well. It has created Mundo de Sabores, a catering business that offers employment and job training for previously detained LGBTQ+ migrants. And it holds art performances for justice, including the annual Drag for a Dream event.
