Triangle Empowerment Center

Ladies of the T

MISSION: L.O.T.T. was formed in 2013 at Triangle Empowerment Center, Inc. and is a regional recognized group. Our mission is to empower the Trans/Drag/Cross Dresser community in our Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. We want to bring positivity to our local and surrounding community in Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill to show our Trans/Drag/Cross Dressing community in the South that we are here to help them find and receive the resources they need.

PURPOSE: We want to bring Trans/Drag/Cross Dresser women of color in the South into our group to help them build a bigger and better future. We will also be doing outreach to help bring awareness on how important it is to know your status. We will educate and guide young and all people of the Trans/Drag/Cross Dresser community. We are also here to give out valuable resources and to guide our community to the proper resources they need as far as concerning healthcare, housing, food, awareness, employment, equality, religion, transphobia, anti-transviolence, stigma, & discrimination.
