Supporting Your LGBTQ Organizations

By Charlotte Robinson, December 29, 2022

As 2022 comes to an end we are all inundated by an enormous number of organizations asking for funds. At all cost we must ensure with whatever way we can help that our LGBTQ community continues to thrive in 2023. Sadly in 2022 70% of LGBTQ people have reported experiencing discrimination & we’re facing over 300 anti-LGBTQ bills advancing in legislatures across the country surpassing 2021 which was the worst year on record for introducing & enacting anti-LGBTQ legislation in state houses across America. So as 2022 comes to a close think about states like Florida where DeSantis is ramping up his unrelenting transphobia weaponization of state agencies for his own political gain & putting the lives of transgender people at risk by passing the Transgender Youth Sports Ban & Don’t Say LGBTQ laws as he eliminates life-saving healthcare for over 9,000 transgender Floridians on Medicaid & attempts to restrict gender-affirming care for trans youth. Now is the time we all need to speak out & act against homophobia, transphobia, racism & hatred of all kinds. We also feel that in the coming year it is crucial to see our LGBTQ communities on all screens big & small in positive, affirming ways to celebrate how far we have come in the last few decades & how important it is to amplify our voices. In 2023 OUTTAKE MEDIA will be announcing a new project that will expand our platform to help address this need. In the meantime support your local LGBTQ organizations to preserve our stories as the radical right continues to try & erase our very existence with hateful propaganda & legislation across the country.
