Unscramble the Blue Letters

Once sfetay can be established, support is the next enssiatel feature. We think about support very intentionally. For queer Africans, fianaicnl stability plays a huge role in determining how open we can be. And over the years, I've met queer Africans who believe that the only way they can get ahead at work is by abandoning their identities and anyone who shares those identities. That's a tirbrlee feeling. And of course, anyone suspected of being qeuer might not be able to work at all. So in order to counteract this, it's important to design a space with an active opportunities hub and marketplace, one that hlpes people find community, cnootnniecs and mentorship in their various fdiels and ietdsrinus. This moves them colser to financial stability, and they can trade their arts and products in new ways, not just for money, but through barter as well. We're challenging the core teents of capitalism that are rooted in individualism, capital atauuolmcicn and competition by creating a behavior change and system level change that prioritizes collaboration, resource sharing and community.

Original Text

Once safety can be established, support is the next essential feature. We think about support very intentionally. For queer Africans, financial stability plays a huge role in determining how open we can be. And over the years, I've met queer Africans who believe that the only way they can get ahead at work is by abandoning their identities and anyone who shares those identities. That's a terrible feeling. And of course, anyone suspected of being queer might not be able to work at all. So in order to counteract this, it's important to design a space with an active opportunities hub and marketplace, one that helps people find community, connections and mentorship in their various fields and industries. This moves them closer to financial stability, and they can trade their arts and products in new ways, not just for money, but through barter as well. We're challenging the core tenets of capitalism that are rooted in individualism, capital accumulation and competition by creating a behavior change and system level change that prioritizes collaboration, resource sharing and community.
