Trans-Inclusive Workplace Workshops
We have been ramping up our consulting activities by conducting over 20 of our flagship Trans-Inclusive Workplace Workshops, reaching over 500 participants in total!
Taunt Magazine Sponsorship
As the fiscal sponsor for TAUNT’s August 2021 issue, Unaccounted, we supported indie publications just like us. As a result of this partnership, TAUNT has committed to at least 20% LGBTQ+ representation among its writing staff.
As part of our entrepreneurial mentorship program, we assisted local business owners in creating growing, sustainable businesses.
Transgender Surgery Fund
We raised over $2,000 for legal name changes and gender-affirming surgeries for transgender Kentuckians through crowdfunding.
Mindful Movement Course
Designed and led by Dr. Anne Miller, the Mindful Movement class served up to 16 students (due to COVID restrictions) per session across 15 weeks. The course focused on mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques.
Natural Disaster Crowdfunding
Through crowdfunding, Queer Kentucky raised $12,000 for victims of Western Kentucky tornadoes.
