LONELYBONES | BOSTON, MA
We at LonelyBones are exactly that - lonely skaters who are tired of feeling unwelcome and underrepresented by traditional skate culture and of having no one to learn, grow, and skate alongside. We're not waiting for the skate industry as it is today to make space for us; we're creating and fostering that space ourselves to be representative, dynamic, and most importantly - safe from anything that isn't strong foundational community ties and the love that comes with that.
Leaders: Claire Lee and Rayven Tate
TAKEOVER | VANCOUVER, BC
Takeover Skateboarding aims to create safe spaces for those historically and presently marginalized and underrepresented in skateboarding and beyond. A BIPOC, LGBTQ+ & 2S, and women-centered community organization, we use skateboarding and art as vehicles to encourage BIPOC youth to engage in radical joy, and offer them space and safety to explore their own identities
Leaders: Taylor Koble and Ryme Lahcene
