  • What No Justice No Pride Built in 2017

    As 2017 comes to a close, join No Justice No Pride (NJNP) in fighting for the rights of ALL trans and queer people, because there can be no pride for some without liberation for all!

    collage1.jpgSince its inception in February, NJNP has worked tirelessly to support trans and queer organizing in the District of Columbia and build community and solidarity with our chapters and allied groups both nationally and internationally. In the Trump era, as trans and queer folks (especially those who are black, brown, Muslim, migrants, Native, and/or disabled) face continued attacks, we know that effective resistance to violence against us depends upon demanding more from those who claim our voices, profit from our traumas, and ignore the lived violence faced by our communities.

    In the face of these injustices - in conjunction with supporting the work of our local, national, and international partners - we have formed two primary programs, but need your help to sustain the work!

    As the once radical LGBTQ+ movement was consolidated into the non-profit industrial complex, Gay Inc. formed and continues to tirelessly work to assimilate itself into mainstream cis-hetero systems of power that depend upon white supremacy, patriarchy, settler colonialism, and other systems of oppression.
