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.

Where you can see us fly

We will be walking in the All Souls' Procession and carrying the kites on Sunday, Nov 7.  If you would like to walk with us and/or carry a kite, please meet in the Casa Libre parking lot (228 North 4th Ave) by 4:30pm. 

The kites will be displayed on the UA mall on Monday, Nov 15 from 11-1pm.  Please join us there for the kickoff event for Transgender Awareness Week.  There will be a poetry reading, speakout, and celebration.

The kites will be displayed in the windows of Voices from Nov. 16-19.  Voices is located at 48 E. Pennington in downtown Tucson.

We will display the kites and march with them in the Transgender Day of Remembrance final event on Saturday, Nov 20 at 5:30pm in Catalina Park.  900 N 4th Ave.


  1. Sadly, I won't be able to attend, but I'll make my own kite anyways, for the symbolism of it. :)
