tradefor is a collaboration community.
an inclusive bartering hub for #altnorm creatives & their allies.
connect. collab. create.
cultivating a culture so that when you see "TF?!" it pegs the question & utters the statement..doyou,tf?! it's indicative of automatically recognizing the community, the ally-ship & the unity of the often overlooked and marginalized community. seeing someone in the garment, at an event, in service to others, or in their bio is to know a portion of what that person believes. KEY-IN
We format this site so that the concept of bartering and trade is no longer frowned upon and is instead used as a means to harness your skills and advance you and your projects as best as you can.
whether it be behind the scenes or in front of the camera we hope to have a digital space that is about connecting and creating.
TF?!: TRADE FOR also known as "doyoutradefor.com" is inspired by an amazing young boy who was filled with love and light, Chaz Antwan Williams. Honoring his character, his charm, his patience and integrity while creating a space he would have been proud of. Chaz was on the spectrum and had ambitions to become a voice over actor.
Here, hopefully, you find people who help you prove anyone wrong, and help you live a high quality life beyond your ailments while using your talents.

As seen in Book of Mormon, J Nycole Ralph loves helping others become the actors and artist-entrepreneurs that they are meant to be! She was making $80K in her 9-5 job but got burnt out and started resenting going to work because it was not her actual dream.
