The Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project ( BLMP ), a first-of-its-kind program housed at Transgender Law Center ( TLC ) and made possible by a 2017 Open Society Foundations Soros Justice Fellowship, launched with an accompanying 20-minute documentary ( at www.youtube.com/watc h?v=hmyvvc91BCs&feature=youtu.be ) and opportunities for community members to get involved.
"As a Black transgender Nigerian migrant, I have too often felt isolated, invisible, and alone in the U.S.," said Ola Osaze, 2017 Soros Justice Fellow and National Organizer of the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project at TLC, in a press release.
"There are no spaces created for people like me, no services developed with me in mind. Community members and supporters are encouraged to connect with BLMP to stay updated on opportunities available through the project. Visit transgenderlawcenter.org/programs/blmp .
