The Knights & Orchids Society (TKO) strives to obtain justice and equality through group economics, education, leadership development, and organizing cultural work that will build the power of the African American TLGB community throughout rural Alabama and across the South.
Nurturing Through Non-Traditional Care
Establishing & providing continuous care for our community is our priority.
TKO was founded in 2012 by Quentin and Jennine Bell. In 2017, TKO became the first and only AIDS Service Organization (ASO) and STD/STI clinic in the state of Alabama founded and led by Black Trans and LGBQ people. We are community people serving the communities that we represent. Our goal is to help more Black trans, same-gender-loving, and Black queer folks access high-quality primary care and Endocrinology services.
