Birmingham transgender resource center celebrates 10 years

Ten years ago, Birmingham native Daroneshia Duncan-Boyd had a conversation at a dining table and unknowingly built a community that would go on to positively impact the lives of hundreds in Alabama. “Being a Black trans woman, I’ve experienced a lot of hardship in Birmingham,” Duncan-Boyd says. “I just really had no place to receive services or resources, so I created TAKE as a peer group to hear the voices of other Black trans women.”
