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.
