Who We Are & What We Do

The Gender Phluid Collective is a collective that was created out of the need to create more diverse and inclusive spaces for those who identify as Black/African-American/PoC intersecting with the African Diaspora within the San Diego  LGBTQIA+, specifically those who identify as non-binary and trans. There are no absolute safe space, but GPC helps to create safer spaces.  GPC provides support groups, resources for community health services, mental health services as well as help to provide items for those transitioning, or just need a little help maintaining. We do welcome everyone to our space, but we do have boundaries and ask that these boundaries are respected.

Mission
