When we take action to end racism, we take a stand against violence, discrimination, and exclusion. Being in community with each other means being aware and accountable. It means ensuring that LGBT BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities do not have to question their safety or well-being in community spaces.

This fact sheet explores how age, race, and sexuality intersect and steps one can take to help strengthen supports for LGBT BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color).
