is a project for and by Black non-binary and Black trans femme people of all ages.
For Black History Month, akt would like to spotlight the resources available to LGBTQ+ people of colour in the UK.
Our IMPakt report found that 47% of the young people akt supported between 2021 and 2022 identified as black, brown, or people of colour. 27% of the young people we supported during this time frame were black.
Black History Month provides a time to examine the intersections of housing, LGBTQ+ identities and race, and raise awareness of the issues affecting black young people trying to access safe housing. We at akt are here to support young LGBTQ+ people of colour – if you’re in need of housing guidance, drop us over a message on our live chat.
