Rashawn & Beyond: Anti-Violence News for Queer People of Color

The Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund aims to establish a sustainable tribute to Rashawn that promotes critical thought about the impact of violence and intolerance, particularly upon queer communities of African descent.

Through this blog, we provide action alerts, event postings and breaking news as a means of informing these communities in ways that enable them to combat racism and homophobia.

Pray the Gay Away

Donnie McClurkin is at it again spewing more hateful and discriminatory speech against queer folks. The reformed homosexual calls gays “vampires”, lashes out at openly gay gospel singer Tonex, and asks him to “pray the gay away.” Much like he did. McClurkin has a (post-gay) history of banting about homosexuality even after allegations arise contradicting his newly found "lifestyle."
It is this sort of rhetoric that makes the mission of the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund that more crucial. There are men and women in attendance in this church who are being taught to hate themselves and to be internally homophobic. What makes it even worse is that often these people never leave the church and continue to sit at the throne of hypocrisy.
