Welcome back to The Tea! We hope you had an amazing Pride month. If you didn’t get a chance to check out our Community Pride issue, click here. We featured work from readers just like you! And just a reminder: This newsletter is intended to represent the depth and diversity of our community, so throughout each and every issue, we have opportunities for you to submit your work, nominate folks you feel we should highlight who are doing great things, and more! The Tea is a community space for us all.
Speaking of queer spaces, thats just what this month’s issue is about! We are excited to highlight and reflect on spaces in our community that allow us to feel safe, celebrate our lives, rest, get resources we need, and more.
In this issue, you will find a look back at one of the longest-running gay clubs in the United States; learn about an accessible luxury experience designed for Black and brown queer travelers; witness a conversation between a NYC-based queer collective founder and a leader of DC Black Pride; and read about our M4BL ecosystem comrades who are fighting against housing insecurity for Black trans folks.
