Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Empowerment) advocates healing from abuse and trauma rather than coping with the symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society. We achieve this by providing trauma-focused resources and education and by producing and partnering with relevant film, television, and theatre, empowering the social change necessary to create a healing movement.
NYC Pride | Heritage of Pride
Heritage of Pride is a nonprofit organization that plans and produces New York City’s official LGBTQIA+ Pride events each year to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969 — the beginning of the modern Gay Rights movement. Heritage of Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. They do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community. With the commencement of Stonewall 50 and World Pride events across NYC and with the generous support of NYC Pride, NQT saw a unique opportunity to put the issue of LGBTQIA+ decriminalization on center stage with the production of the first of its kind Criminal Queerness Festival – now to become a mainstay of our program continuum.
Ring of Keys
Ring of Keys is a national network of queer women+, trans, and gender non-conforming artists working on and offstage in musical theatre. The mission of Ring of Keys is two-fold: a visible, supportive community, as well as a hiring resource for those looking to work with professional artists who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer, femme, trans, non-binary, and the diversity of genders that queerness contains. We strive to kick (ball-change) the closet door open to create a vibrant, diverse musical theatre landscape for the future.
Stonewall Community Foundation
The Stonewall Community Foundation strengthens the LGBTQ Movement by making smart, values-driven investments in dynamic organizations, projects, and leaders. And as a public foundation, they do so in close partnership with donors and the very people working on the front lines of progress. The Stonewall Community Foundation funds over 100 nonprofits a year, in more than 30 issue areas. They also house seven scholarship programs, including the largest in the country created to support LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers. Their grant-making is complemented by intensive capacity building and training programs that equip local leaders with the tools they need to be effective change agents. These include free consulting, coaching opportunities, and monthly workshops. In all we do—from planned giving to scholarships—our priority is making sure community dollars makes a difference.
