Our Mission

ProjectQ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Madin Ray Lopez. Our organization helps LGBTQIA+ youth navigate a world that perpetually tries to diminish them. Our mission is to use hair and self-empowerment as a form of social justice. 


ProjectQ provides free gender affirming haircuts, self empowering workshops, food & hygiene boxes, gender affirming clothing, chest binders, menstrual products, and so much more to LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing homelessness.


We Need Your Support Today!

The Hairstream

ProjectQ began as a mobile salon. 


After years of fundraising, 

ProjectQ purchased this 1977 Airstream and begun construction to turn this into the mobile self-esteem building salon. 


For the entire month of October 2018

the hairstream went on a US Tour thru middle America and the South to provide free haircuts to LGBTQ+ youth in

these underserved areas. 

We are hoping to go on another

US tour the in Spring 2021.
