A homemade Syrian meal might cheer her up, but Salma doesn’t know the recipe, or what to call the vegetables in English, or where to find the right spices"

A huge number of queer and trans people rely on revenue that can’t be traced back to an employer, so financial supports for businesses and employers will not help us. Many of us will face a crisis before government help arrives. Artists, performers, sex workers, tip-based workers - these are just some of the people who are are experiencing a swift and brutal loss of income. On top of that, many LGBTQ2S people are not supported by their family of origin and have a weak financial support network.

As of Saturday, March 28th, over 1300 people have asked for emergency help.

They need $300,000 if they don't need to pay rent (and over $900,000 if they need to pay rent).

We have been able support 250 people so far - but our new goal is to support 500 people who are in dire need.

If you can offer any support, please donate.
