2021 is on track to “become the worst year for state legislative attacks against LGBTQ people in history.
Hundreds of bills that target LGBTQ people have been filed in state legislatures, creating a “state of crisis,” advocates say.

David said the number of bills, particularly those targeting transgender young people, is “unprecedented” and that 2021 is on track to “become the worst year for state legislative attacks against LGBTQ people in history.”

Introducing a project close to my heart and passions.
is the intersection of 2SLGBTQ+, Art, Religion, and Spirituality. It begins here in Arizona and intersects with 2SLGBTQ+ communities across the US providing platforms for conversation and programs with the intent of "Restoring Balance" and sharing our stories and voices. I want to thank
and the team at
Arizona Latino Arts & Cultural Center
for their support as a partner and fiscal sponsor. My co-creators of the project
, the artist
for the use of his work on the website, and those friends that have already committed to bringing the project to fruition, and especially my Two-Spirit friends and family from the Arizona Two-Spirit Project. This project will intersect and continue that work in Native communities.
Why is this project important? As of today, there are 63+bills across the country in various stages of the legislative process that are harmful to the 2SLGBTQ+ communities including bills that have religious exemption clauses that affect healthcare and our families.
Gaytablos addresses these and more.
Please give the site a visit, like the FB page, and stay tuned for more of our rollout.
Sincerely and in "Beauty"....Jeffrey
