Black Girl Dangerous is a multi-faceted forum that amplifies the voices of queer and trans people of color. It was created in December of 2011 by award-winning writer and queer Black tomgirl nerd, Mia McKenzie. Since its inception, BGD has amplified the voices of over 200 queer and trans writers of color writing about racism, queerness, gender, economic justice, disability justice and so much more, and reached an audience of over 5 million people from every populated continent on earth. BGD is the only website of its kind.

BGD is a grassroots, non-profit, reader-funded project. We are trying to raise $15,000 to help continue our work, including our online platform (paying our writers and editors for their work) and our Get Free Program for Queer and Trans Youth of Color.

Our forum publishes important, compelling writing by queer and trans people of color from all walks of life.













Get Free Program for Queer and Trans Youth of Color





Get Free is an artistic, intellectual, emotional and practical project for queer and trans youth of color that focuses on the inner work it takes to Get Free in a world where, for us—people who experience oppression based on race and queerness or transness—just surviving is a feat. Through writing, dreaming, screaming, owning up, and facing who we are, who we have been, and who we might become, we aim to start an emotional r/evolution that will reverberate throughout our lives and our communities.

This program is FREE for youth and includes workshops, creative projects, discussions, confessions and solutions re:

Taking steps toward healing our own individual trauma so that we can come together in healthier ways;

Treating each other better, causing less harm, and being accountable to each other for the harm we do cause;

Speaking truth about, and pushing back against, racism, misogny, ableism, and various other forms of oppression within QTPOC communities;

and more!

We launched the Get Free Program last year, with 12 youth from all over the country and the UK. It was a HUGE success! Donate to help more queer and trans youth of color Get Free!

These programs can have a huge impact, not only in QTPoC communities but in the world. If you have $50, $25 or even $10 to contribute to help make these important programs happen, please GIVE!
