Rapid Response: Mini-Grants for Black LGBTQ+ Youth


Grant Summary

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center knows the importance of activism at the intersection of being Black and a part of the LGBTQ+ community. Pride was a riot started by Black Trans woman Marsha P. Johnson in response to the unfair treatment of queer people in New York City in 1969.

Today, we continue fighting for the Black and LGBTQ+ communities, just like Marsha.

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is investing in the grassroots activism of Black LGBTQ+ youth with 10 mini grants of $250 each. These funds are intended to support Black LGBTQ+ youth-led grassroots activism or educational events in support of the Black Lives Matter and intersectional racial justice movements.


Applicants must:
-be age 16-21
-live in Lehigh or Northampton counties
-identify as Black
-identify within the LGBTQ+ community
