TG Archive Acquisitions & Friends of Queer Voices
We are kicking off fundraising to support the Houston Queer Voices Radio Show and to raise money for TG Archive Acquisitions!
Queer Voices has been the reliable voice of the Houston GLBT community for many years. Currently Queer Voices can be heard every Monday evening on Pacifica Radio’s Houston station KPFT. For some time Pacifica Radio’s financial situation has been difficult. This has left Queer Voices in a situation where they may need to make alternative production and broadcast arrangements on very short notice. The purpose of Our “Friends of Queer Voices” fund will raise money to support the Houston Queer Voices radio show by assuring that there is money available to support this move should it happen and provide other funding to Queer Voices as appropriate.
The second fund we are kicking off is the TG Archive Acquisition fund. Currently when we find something that we would like to acquire for the Transgender Archives, we do semi-panic fundraising and hope we can raise the funds before someone else acquires the item. This fund is to give us a head start on the fund raising so we can improve our acquisition success.
AND … if you would like to support both of these funds just donate via the link below and we will split your donation evenly between the two…
The Friends of Queer Voices fund and the TG Archives Acquisition fund are projects of the Transgender Foundation of America (TFA). TFA is a 501(c)3 public charity located in Houston, Texas. 10% of funds raised for projects go to TFA’s unrestricted account to cover support group space rental and general expenses. All other monies raised directly support the purpose of the fund.
For the Friends of Queer Voices fund it is possible that the time will come when the producers of Queer Voices may decide that these backup funds are no longer necessary. If that occurs 50% of the fund balance will be donated to one or more 501(c)3s chosen by Queer Voices and the remaining 50% will be donated to the TG Archive Acquisition fund.
