Meet the women who "create safe spaces for people to be exactly as they are. without censorship. without fear. with love."  These women are the faces behind, Creating Space, a HTX People Project Documentary. 

"c r e a t i n g s p a c e." captures the raw and uncensored voices of six Black LGBT identified individuals who proactively aim to challenge societal standards and conformist ideas. Without apology, the narrative confronts traditional thinking and offers varying perspective on religion, race, sexuality, restricted gender binary, societal rejection and cultural oppression.
