Loftin Wilson

North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition
Loftin Wilson is a southern, queer, transmasculine harm reductionist originally from a small town in rural central NC, who now lives in Durham, NC. He started as a volunteer with the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition in 2010 and then worked part-time as a Harm Reduction Organizer for NCHRC for five years, before starting as full-time staff with NCHRC in the fall of 2015. He does overdose prevention, HIV/hepatitis prevention, and syringe access work, with a focus on the transgender community, rural communities, and people who are incarcerated. During 2015-2016, Loftin led NCHRC's rural overdose prevention project in Vance County. During 2017, he is working with Louise Vincent on a project integrating HCV testing and linkage to care for participants in NCHRC's Greensboro syringe exchange site. He also teaches regular harm reduction sessions at several jails and prisons across the state and runs NCHRC's Durham syringe exchange site. Loftin is a firm believer in harm reduction, sex worker and drug user rights, prison abolition, and gender self-determination.
