Bakari Jones is a native Baltimorean committed to reshaping the landscape of her hometown.
Bakari grew up in both Baltimore city and county and after pit stops in Philadelphia and New Orleans decided to come back to her home town. In January 2012 she founded Bois of Baltimore with the goal of creating safe spaces for alternative masculinity. Bois of Baltimore aims to organize women and trans men that identify along the masculine spectrum.
The mission of Bois of Baltimore is to create safe spaces for alternative masculinity. This is accomplished by uniting those that identify along the masculine spectrum (Boi, Stud, Butch, AG, Lesbian, Trans, Dom, and Masculine of Center) through a diverse offering of group activities, community service projects, local partnerships, discussions, and educational programs. By harnessing the creative, social, and economic capital of this collective, and that of our allies, we improve the socio-economic condition of queer persons of color in and around Baltimore thereby empowering them to create their own spaces for alternative masculinity and any other form of gender expression!
By cultivating an environment that encourages collaboration and demands sustainability, the Bois of Baltimore define what it means to be a progressive, queer person of color living in the greater Baltimore area.
In just a few months, the group already has over 20 PAID members and aims to have close to 50 by year-end. For more information on how to get involved with the group, please email BoisofBaltimore@gmail.com
