Shenaaz and Q – Queer Crescent Healing

Date grant awarded: July 14, 2018

Queer Crescent Healing is a healing arts organization centered on safety, wellness and community for queer and trans Muslims of color in the Bay Area. Their programs focus on building resilience, connecting to spiritual practices, and grounding in their wholeness towards the goals of collective healing and liberation. Founded by Shenaaz to address the increasing danger Muslims and LGBTQIA communities experience during this political moment in the U.S., Queer Crescent Healing provides LGBTQIA Muslims support and community events to better resource themselves and break isolation.

The grant will help Queer Crescent Healing continue offering this group at no cost to participants. The grant will cover the costs for space to hold sessions, and to purchase food.
