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.

We Remember Every Day

Today, Nov 20, is the official Transgender Day of Remembrance.  For those of us in Tucson, we will gather at Catalina Park (4th Ave and 2nd St) at 5:30pm and call out the names of those transgender people who were murdered in the last year.  This is a day for the living and the dead.  This is a day for transgender people and it is a day for those who are not transgender.  We cannot, nor should we have to, do this alone.  If you are an ally, please join us in remembering.  Please stand alongside us.  We need you there.  Thank you.

Good Press (and a tiny misquote!)

Check out the interview with TC Tolbert in the Tucson Weekly!  And please note that TC said that Chattanooga was the "buckle" of the Bible Belt - not the "butthole"!  Oh dear!  What a misquote!  The rest of the article is true.  And a big thank you to A. Greene for conducting the interview and getting it into the Weekly! http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/t-qanda/Content?oid=2333288
