Welcome to Made for Flight

Made for Flight is a Transgender youth and ally empowerment project created by TC Tolbert and run in conjunction with Casa Libre en la Solana. Made for Flight receives gracious funding from the Kresge Arts in Tucson grant via Tucson Pima Arts Council and the Alliance Fund's Queer Youth Initiative grant. Thank you both!

This workshop series incorporates transgender history, ally development, creative writing, and kite building to commemorate the lives of the transgender individuals who have been murdered in the last year.

What we do

Made for Flight creates a space specifically for youth voice during the preparation for, and the implementation of, Tucson’s Tenth Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20, 2010), culminating with a public display of hand-made kites that celebrate the lives of murdered Transgender individuals and a youth literary reading at UA.

Workshops are ongoing and open to trans and allied youth. During each workshop we learn a bit of transgender history, share personal stories, learn about our transgender sisters and brothers who have been murdered in the previous year, and build kites to commemorate their lives.
