After graduation from Prairie View A & M University, Britni D. Andrews became a queer counselor intern based in Houston, TX.
Britni has utilized an artistic medium of language and an eclectic approach to wellness to sculpt their role as Creative Director of @TheKIDDORG, a community initiative. They have produced creative workshops in collaboration with Covenant House California (CHC), Covenant House Texas and Harris County Juvenile Probation Department (HCJPD). @THEKIDDORG has a mission to push the state of change forward in conversations about mental health, community engagement, criminal justice reform and LGBTQ+ community support.
Recently named as an Idea Fund Round 12 Grantee, Britni is producing “The Session: LGBTQ+ Mental Health feat. QPOC”- a short film composed of private unscripted dialogues with Queer People of Color (QPOC) reflecting on their unique identities within their cultures, the LGBTQ+ community and the challenges faced in expression of their gender, sexuality and development of affirming and inclusive relationships.
