Brave Space Alliance


Brave Space Alliance is the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ+ Center located on the South Side of Chicago, dedicated to creating and providing affirming, culturally competent, for-us by-us resources, programming, and services for LGBTQ+ individuals on the South and West sides of the city. We strive to empower, embolden, and educate each other through mutual aid, knowledge-sharing, and the creation of community-sourced resources as we build toward the liberation of all oppressed peoples.

Dignity First Approach

Dignity is a fundamental human right that should be afforded to all members of the LGBTQ+ community, without exception. Unfortunately, LGBTQ+ individuals have historically faced significant levels of discrimination and marginalization in society, leading to negative impacts on their mental health and well-being. It is crucial to promote respect, acceptance, and inclusion for all members of the LGBTQ+ community, in order to build a more equitable and just society.

Four Pillars of Dignity

Health, Housing, Food, Identity.
