Trans* Inter* Queer Community & Health Centre
Casa Kuà is organised by trans* and non binary BIPoCs to make health more accessible to other trans*, inter*, non binary and queer people, and especially for those affected by racism.
The aim of the centre is to bring alternative, traditional, and conventional medical treatments together. We also want to bring communities together, centring the needs and wishes of BIPoC (Black, Indigenous & People of Colour) trans* people, because for us, communities and health are inseparable.
The health care system in Germany is designed according to white and cis-male norms, and this goes hand in hand with sexist, racist, classist, ableist and body-negative discrimination. For this reason, many inter*, a-binary, trans* people, women, disabled and fat people fall out of the regular health system and suffer from health-impairing conditions, or have to resign themselves to poor quality health care.
We see health as holistic and not only as the treatment of symptoms, because ill health can be caused by societal conditions, intersectional discrimination, and also loneliness and isolation. For this reason we want to build a space that is both an alternative health structure and a community centre.
Casa Kuà is especially meant for the marginalised in the health system and in society, and who are disadvantaged due to discrimination, sexism, homo, trans* or inter* hostility. As we work from our own social positioning, the groups most important for us to work with are women, lesbians, queers, a-binary, inter* and trans* people who are also affected by racism and illegalization.
In addition we also want to include other individuals, groups and communities in a participative way.
