Devin Michael Lowe
Founder & Executive Director
Devin is a community organizer invested in the liberation of Black and trans people from the constraints of capitalism, white supremacy, and cis-hetero-patriarchy. He holds a passion for moving resources to his community and is committed to helping to create a world where Black trans people are not just seen, but respected, protected, supported, and valued. With an understanding of the need to center the most marginalized, and for trans masculine people to be working in communal solidarity to support Black trans women, Devin is the founder and current Executive Director for the Black Trans Travel Fund.

Director of Operations
Morticia Godiva is an actor, dancer, writer, and producer. Some of their work includes “Feeling Like An Orchid”, a short film that they wrote, produced, and starred in. The film shares a story of black love and dating within a polyamorous relationship. Godiva recently produced a body of work that is poetry in motion and an ode to Fem Queen Joy, titled “Boomerang”.
As an artist, Morticia creates an authentic narrative through literature, dance, music, and performance. She is interested in the space and distance between people, and her innate ability to transform that into something of beauty for the viewer implicitly parts the gift of empathy to all who devour her art. Thematically, the truth of self and our right to self determine our own existence is prevalent throughout Godiva's work.
In October of 2019 the Black Trans Travel Fund welcomed Morticia as their Director of Community Engagement.
