We believe that empowering homeless LGBTQIA+ youth will lead them to improved self worth and even acquiring housing!
To use hair as a form of social justice and
create a safe space for
LGBTQIA+ youth to find their identity.
ProjectQ is a non-profit organization founded by Madin Lopez to help LGBTQIA and homeless youth combat bullying, develop self esteem and find an identity for themselves through hair styling.
ProjectQ provides free gender affirming haircuts and self empowering workshops to LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing homelessness.

ProjectQ began as a mobile salon.
After years of fundraising,
Madin purchased this 1977 Airstream and begun construction on turning this 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 youth in these problematic areas.
We are hoping to go on another tour
in Spring 2020!
