UNMUTED exists to raise the voices and representation of LGBTQI+ people of colour in Birmingham. 
Through regular meet ups, events and on going support, we provide safe spaces for Queer Trans Intersex people of colour (QTIPOC) to connect, grow and explore their identity.

QTIPOC can feel they are 'floating between two worlds'. Often ostracised from their family and culture of origin because of their sexuality, they then seek solace in the mainstream LGBT community, but can struggle to find acceptance there also due to challenges such as racism and faith - based insensitivity. UNMUTED provides a space where LGBTQI+ people of colour can bring their whole selves to the table, and connect with folks of similar experience. 

We use the outcome of the discussions held in our QTIPOC-only spaces to impact change to mainstream services in Birmingham. Connecting with wider LGBTQI+ organisations to stress the importance of bespoke services and events.

Many members of the QTIPOC community currently feel unable to access mainstream services. UNMUTED often steps in in times of crisis to support members of our network who are experiencing homelessness, mental health crises or trying to remove themselves from domestically violent living situations.

These emergency events often come with added costs of transportation, temporary accommodation fees and food. Which are currently donated from within the QTIPOC community.

We are in the process of developing a structured volunteer crisis team and emergency fund. Your support as a patreon will help to cover the costs of training, expenses and resources for this team.
