Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.
This list of organizations offers resources to people in prison and is focused on Queer/Trans issues and/or prison activism & survival resources in the U.S.
Black & Pink conducted a 133-question survey within their membership and received nearly 1,200 responses, thus producing the largest-ever data-set available on the experiences of LGBTQ prisoners in the country. Their report aims to share the experiences of LBGTQ prisoners in the United States by elevating prisoner voices, stories, and leadership to inspire immediate collective action.
