ALP has been a political and cultural home for many of us as Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Two Spirit, Trans & Gender Non Conforming People of Color in New York City and beyond. We are part of a legacy of LGBTSTGNC POC resistance and resiliency rooted in our traditions that builds political power for our collective survival.
ALP organized a dynamic panel on Black Radical Feminist Traditions, featuring Barbara Smith, Reina Gossett, Kenyon Farrow and Adaku Utah.
This year ALP celebrated 20+ years of organizing for the liberation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) People of Color at 'Erotic as Power' Gala. CHeck out these photos from the gala (from the top: Elizabeth Lorde reading 'Power' by her mother, Audre Lorde; middle: Adaku Utah opening the gala with a community grounding ritual and dance; bottom: ALP community gathering in a hug to end the community grounding ritual).
Every year ALP organizes a Transgender Day of Action to honor the resistance of trans & gender non-conforming people of color who were at Stonewall. Our resistance and resilience carries on into today!
Every year the Safe OUTSide the System Collective of the Audre Lorde Project puts together Bed Stuy Pride! Check out this video!
