Before the height of COVID-19, QTL was presented with an opportunity to purchase a 12-bedroom property in Seattle’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. This opportunity and QTL’s work is not coincidental. COVID-19 is unmasking a systemic disparity that the QTBIPOC community knows far too well; Seattle’s housing inequity impacts the health and safety of everyone, most of all those pushed to the margins of society. COVID-19 has exposed the interconnectedness of our health and safety, on a global scale, demonstrating the lack of adequate, sustainable, and accessible housing as a public health issue.
Queer the Land has advocated for accessible and affordable housing since 2016 and our message remains clear, consistent, and even more vital during these times. Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, deserve dignity, safety, a sense of belonging, and a place to call home. Fund the dream by donating what you can during this time of crisis and share this ask with your community across the globe, because whoever you are and wherever you are, you are connected to a QTBIPOC in your own community and our health and liberation is tied up with one another!
