The Knights and Orchids Society (TKO) is a southern centered grassroots startup founded and led by black, queer, transgender and gender non-conforming people fighting at the intersections of racial and gender justice. They are a direct support program that provides resources to rural and isolated areas of Alabama where folks are having difficulty achieving resources to reach transition goals. Their mission is to improve the quality of life within the LGBTQ+ community by creating safe spaces that empower, educate, and unite queer people of color in rural areas.

This organization is supported through the Funding Queerly Giving Circle, which is housed at Astraea.
