DEDICATED TO QTPOC SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Here at Reflect Collective, we are driven by a single goal: to support Queer, Trans, and POC (QTPOC) survivors of sexual and domestic violence. We believe that justice is achieved through collective healing by reflecting the needs of this community. We do so by hosting artistic events that centers survivor's recovery, providing financial assistance to QTPOC survivors, and posting healthy relationship resources on social media. Through our work, we strive to end the epidemic of sexual and domestic violence in QTPOC communities and make South Florida a safer, better place for all.
Queer Fest is Reflect’s annual signature event hosted in April that raises funds for Reflect’s bi-annual Queer Survivor Grant. Queer Fest is a unique variety show as our stage hosts an all Queer and Trans B.I.P.O.C. production of performers from all artistic backgrounds, many of whom are survivors of sexual violence themselves. Queer Fest brings our local South Florida community together to cry, to laugh, to heal, to love, to resist, and to stand in solidarity with sexual violence survivors.
QTPOC SURVIVOR GRANT
Our Queer Survivor Grant is an unrestricted grant for LGBTQIA+ survivors of sexual violence living in Florida to help them become financially independent and pay for the costs attributed to sexual violence. Our goal is to support LGBTQIA+ survivors financially to give them more autonomy and help them through any financial burdens they may have. Applicants must complete a survey to be eligible for the grant, but are NOT required to retell their story as it re-traumatizes applicants. Our grant opens in July.
INTIMATE SURVIVOR SERIES
Our Intimate Survivor Series is a series of events that Reflect hosts along with local artists in the Fall to provide a safe space for survivors to express themselves through art. Each event has a different art theme, from poetry to dancing to modeling, and anyone with any level of background art experience can come, even those without experience. These sessions are meant to be therapeutic and empowering. This year, our Art Therapy Series will start in August. Stay tuned for official dates!
