Intersection of Ability, Gender & Sexual Diversity

We facilitate online conversations and address gender and sexual diversity, access for those with various neurological and physical abilities, and the needs of individuals who live at the intersection of these identities. Our goal is to help ensure that all people, regardless of ability, can find safe spaces to talk about gender and sexuality, find social networks, and feel a sense of belonging. This project is presented in partnership with Compassionate Atlanta, a non-profit that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action throughout the Greater Atlanta area.

Testimonials:

Within a matter of months last year, I was in a major car crash at work, lost my job as a fire chief because of discrimination after coming out at work, my car died, my spouse left me, and I became homeless after losing my house. SOJOURN didn’t hesitate and found me a safe place to stay that same day. I cried when I saw the place, it was certainly nicer than my car and so much more than I expected. 

Within a week, (they) called me and said she had found me a more long-term place to stay, in truth, (they) had six places I could go.  Without the good work of SOJOURN, I never would have reached the healing space I’m in now. I am forever indebted. I can never return in gratitude what I have received and can only resolve to be bound forever in loving friendship and attempt to equal their efforts. ~Rachel M.

When I initially contacted you, it was after a night spent planning my own suicide. Sojourn … yanked me from the jaws of death. I truly feel like myself for the first time ever, with no one I'm expected to be, and no role I'm expected to play. I didn't realize how much self-hatred and shame I carried around. Thank you!   ~Rebekah S.
