In 1977, a small group of indomitable women huddled around the kitchen table and said, ”If there’s going to be a women’s movement that prioritizes the needs of lesbians and women of color we’re going to have to fund it ourselves.” That’s exactly what they did. And Astraea was born.
Here’s what nearly 40 years of queer activism looks like.
Today, on International Human Rights Day, we are proud to stand with LGBTQI activists across the globe. Our rights are human rights.
Join us. By supporting Astraea you are supporting the bravest activists – some of whom live right next door and some in the most remote and vulnerable regions of the world. Together, we are creating a world where every one of us can actively, enthusiastically, and passionately belong.
