Welcome to Black LGBTQIA+ Therapy Fund

The Black LGBTQIA+ Therapy Fund is a program to fund therapy sessions for Black LGBTQIA+ folk with the aim to make therapy more accessible and to change lives.

Black people are fighting for the right to live and Black LGBTQIA+ people are having to explain that we exist and that the two co exist as part of our identities. Amongst a number of other things, Black LGBTQIA+ people have been isolated from their families, made homeless and have not been able to exist in their true identities in front of family. This is taking a huge toll on the mental health of a number of us.

That’s why having a fund such as ours is imperative to the health of Black LGBTQIA+ people. Existing at the intersection of being Black and queer is a unique experience that deserves to be handled with care, and most mainstream therapy fails to adequately address this. 
Having a Black queer therapist can make a world of difference and shouldn’t be a luxury, and the Black LGBTQIA+ Therapy Fund exists to bridge that gap.
