We don’t need donations… But here are three great organisations that we think are donations worthy…
UK Black Pride is a safe space to celebrate diverse sexualities, gender identities, cultures, gender expressions and backgrounds and we foster, represent and celebrate Black LGBTQ and QTIPOC culture through education, the arts, cultural events and advocacy. Importantly, UK Black Pride promotes unity and cooperation among LGBTQ people of diasporic communities in the UK, as well as their friends and families. In the words of Audre Lorde: “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives. Our struggles are particular, but we are not alone.”

“#CharitySoWhite sparked a conversation on the many ways in which racism operates within the charity sector.
It was a conversation rooted in the experiences of people of colour working in the charity sector. We are a POC led campaign group seeking to tackle institutional racism in the charity sector.
This is a conversation about power and privilege. It is a conversation about how the structures and cultures within our sector reinforce inequality in our sector. We don’t want to burn the sector down, we want to make it better.”
