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.

Thank you's!

We would just like to take a moment to thank Ethan St. Pierre for maintaining the Transgender Day of Remembrance website.  We use this incredibly valuable resource a lot here at Made for Flight and we couldn't do this project without his work.  Thank you, Ethan!  Please visit his site at http://www.transgenderdor.org/

We would also like to thank the folks at Transgender Europe who maintain the Trans Murder Monitoring Project.  This is another invaluable site.  Thank you all!  http://www.transrespect-transphobia.org/
