Helping a community in need

Helping a community in need

While LGBTQ people are often met with challenges, thankfully, many in the community feel compelled to meet those challenges head on, and clear an easier path for their peers. In this installment of the Real People, Real Voices series, Jai Rodriguez is joined by two resilient change-makers who were able to build resources to help their local communities. Nikeisah Newton provides access to healthy food options with Meals4Heels, while Kayla Gore houses and protects Memphis’ trans community with the efforts of My Sistah’s House. To learn more about their stories, watch the video below and visit My Sistah’s House and Meals4Heels.
