Got a Girl Crush: The Kitchen Sisters podcast about Lyneee Breedlove’s Homobiles
Homobiles has been called “Uber for Drag Queens,” but with a mission that is social, not financial.
The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silvia) are Peabody Award winning independent producers who create stories for NPR (most notably The Hidden World of Girls) and other public media and work to build community through their storytelling.
Homobiles is a non-commercial, volunteer, 24/7 ride service created by Lynnee Breedlove (formerly of the seminal dyke punk band, Tribe 8) for the “LGBTQRXT and transgender community and others around San Francisco who feel the need for safe, dependable rides, outside traditional services. “Moes getting hoes where they needs to goes,” is their motto. Homobiles is for people who feel at risk because they don’t conform to sexual or gender norms and have been targets of rudeness or shame or violence, says Lynne. Homobiles is a network of independent drivers who pilot their own cars, a non-profit organization that caters to this underserved, and sometimes harassed community in the San Francisco Bay Area. This community car service operates on donations. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
