The intersection of feminism and queer identities is the name of the game!
ProjectQ is a passion project of Madin Lopez’s that is highly focused on creating a generation of lgbt homeless youth that love themselves. These youth have the opportunity to create their own destiny, they have a better chance at achieving their goals if they know they are worthy of success.
We have purchased a vintage airstream trailer to create a mobile self esteem building hair salon. By renovating this trailer, i hope to prove to them and myself that tenacity speaks louder than circumstances.
My first event for projectQ was held at the QPOC conference at CSUN in 2012. I have worked at the LGBT youth drop in center on Highland for the past 2 years, giving haircuts to about 30 homeless youth a month. Once the trailer is up and running i plan to take her on the road and help youth in many shelters across the coast (possibly nation) retrieve a sense of self.
Identity is important for these young souls to surpass their demographic’s statistics, which too often ends in overdose, suicide, and hate crimes.
