Queer Housing

Queer Housing Nacional is a public space for queer women of color and our allies seeking/offering long/short term housing anywhere. An alternative to Craigslist ads, because we u-haul, then break up, create good energy, have alters, are artists, and spread positive energy.

Shawn created Queer Housing Nacional in September 2010 to respond to the need for queer community in each aspect of our lives, including housing.  Since September 2010’s launch of Queer Housing Nacional, additional Housing listservs and resources for queer folks have begun, including the Queer Commons Housing List and the Queer Housing NYC Facebook group, mirrored after the housing resource open for hundreds of queer folk.

  3. Hi Ronnie,
    I added you to the listserv already at Saskia’s request. I recommend sending that message there, so that the community may see it. If you have questions on how to do this, I can walk you through.
