501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Ovations Global Network is asking YOU to help create LGBTQIA Safe Spaces under a project called What The Punk. The project is launching in Florida with plans to evolve nationwide. The goal is to provide safe spaces, dance and music being the common denominator, to as many people possible regardless of sexuality, gender, age, race, or experience level. Under the shared belief that community and performative expression can save lives, WTP curates weekly, monthly, annual, and youth led LGBTQIA Safe Space initiatives. Among those impacted by HIV/AIDS — the population WTP supports — are largely young LGBTQIA individuals, many of which are people of color who are members of the ballroom scene, and/or underground street dance community. WTP emerges out of a vital need for allies and “support systems“ within those communities.
