What is Brownch? Brownch is a social space for queer and trans people of color.
We meet up for brunch, we hang out, socialize, and get to know each other. Just plain old community building! No fundraising, no political strategizing (unless you want to). Just a bunch of brunchin’ brown queer and trans folks getting together!
IMPORTANT NOTE: We intend this to be a gathering by and for queer and trans people of color only. We understand the important roles of our allies of color and our white allies in our lives and also hold dearly the special moments (like this) when our queer and trans POC communities can socialize together.
