In February 2018, Liberty Hill partnered with the Genders and Sexualities Alliance (GSA) Network of Southern California—one of our grantees fighting to empower and train young LGBTQ leaders—to call on Los Angeles County elected officials to address issues of disproportionate criminalization and abusive treatment of LGBTQ youth of color.
It was the kind of warm and sunny winter’s day that makes L.A. feel truly special. But for the donor activists and foundation partners attending Liberty Hill’s Queer Youth Power van tour, the day was about celebrating another side of Los Angeles: its powerful, and often pioneering, legacy as a launch pad for LGBTQ liberation.
A resilient multiracial, Black and Ingenious Trans-Gender-Non-Conforming femme youth of color and advocate.
