Our Mission

The Knights & Orchids Society (TKO) strives to build the power of the TLGB community for African Americans throughout rural areas in Alabama and across the south, to obtain our dream of justice and equality through group economics, education, leadership development, and organizing cultural work.

Upcoming Projects to Support

Donate to our Building Fund 

$87,019 of $350,000 raised

Understanding that historically, Black Trans and LGBQ folks have rarely had opportunities to define space, acquire ownership, and invest. We have always had to borrow or create spaces (without ownership) that empower, uplift, and unite. Imagine the power we would hold and the work we could accomplish if we owned land where we could build and invest. Each generation should not have to keep starting from zero. Ownership is ground zero and the foundation upon which future generations will begin to build and sustain generational wealth. This brings us back to "WHY" we are doing this fundraiser.

 

TKO is purchasing our building!  It is a multilevel brick structure with over 16,500 sq./ft of movement building greatness. It is located within an opportunity zone at the foot of the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge. We are making long-term sustainable moves to acquire ownership for the TGNC and LGBQ community. “Why” Because we need a sustainable place to train & skill-up the next generation of TGNC leaders and we cannot do it without you!
