25 YEARS OF AFFINITY.
We envision a society where all Black LGBTQ+ people can be free.
Affinity Community Services is a Black led, queer led organization on Chicago’s Southside dedicated to social justice in Black LGBTQ+ communities. For 25 years, we have centered Black queer women through community organizing, intergenerational programming, education, and healing justice.
We work to end the marginalization of Black LGBTQ+ people globally by building brave activist communities where all intersections of LGBTQ+ identity are fully embraced. Through activism, education, and transformative justice practices, we build avenues for collective action, LGBTQ+ justice, healing, and Black liberation.
