As QMF has grown since our relaunch in 2020, our grantees and community have continued to push us to offer more and engage authentically with our movement. To address the growing needs, we are thrilled to announce that we have brought on a QMF Organizing and Communications Manager, Torrianna Foster!

Torrianna Foster (they/them/we) is a queer and disabled organizer, ethicist; and community educator born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Torrianna has a BA in Religion and Practical Theology, an M.Div, and a MASJ in Womanist and Feminist Studies, focusing on Black Feminist organizing, consent education, and cultural wellness. They have served as a K-8 educator, certified intimacy coordinator and coach, pastoral care minister, and curriculum developer.

Torrianna champions the spiritual, sexual, and communal power of Black queer and trans femmes in the South with a distinctly joyful, embodied, and trauma-informed approach. While teaching and leading organizations through power building, social-emotional learning, and age-appropriate sex education; Torrianna empowers their kin to take back their power through mental, sexual, and spiritual wholeness.

Torrianna is a lifelong learner with a passion for Black queer storytelling, womanist activism, and Megan Thee Stallion. When they’re not advocating for abolition and accessible sex education, you can find them reading a romance novel, daydreaming about llamas, or watching a cult documentary.

In their new role, Torrianna is building out the ways in which we communicate and organize alongside our grantees, alumni, and the Southeastern movement as a whole. Torrianna looks forward to connecting, laughing and liberating alongside comrades and community around the things that keep us alive.

Please join us in welcoming Torrianna into this new role! If you would like to meet Torrianna in person, we invite you to join us for the Southern Summit, at which Torrianna will be presenting alongside Blair Franklin to discuss the past, present, and future of LGBTQ organizing. We hope to see you there!
