Proud Black and Trans Activist LaTravious Collins are refusing to wait for anyone’s permission to fight back. Armed with the plight of experience, she is a self-proclaimed warrior for an under-served community facing what can often seem like an impossible fate. A mother to the TGNC community in Brooklyn, NY, she has set out to provide safe healing spaces where community members can openly express themselves without judgment. As a mother, LaTravious offers guidance and leadership with love and understanding, but her heart and soul are what she truly brings to the fight. While making a pathway for other trans women of color to move away from the oppression of the south, LaTravious began to lay the foundation of what will one day be her legacy. She is a published poet, a songwriter, and a playwright. As a part of her commitment to the cause, she hosts a clothing drive/beauty and health spa on International Trans Visibility Day, and during the week of TDOR, Ms. Collins honors trans men and women of color for their activism and visibility with the L.O.V.E. Award (or the Leaders Of Visibility and Evolution Award).
