Queer People of Color Conference
The Queer People of Color Conference gives people the opportunity to understand the diversity of being a person of color within the queer community. It focuses on the issues of injustice and oppression faced by those within such communities, while simultaneously seeking methods of social reformation to alleviate such issues. It sheds light on various issues from the current political climate, safe sex and HIV, the coming out process for ethnic communities, to the movement of art; visual and performing. By illuminating these perspectives, through engaging workshops, discussion groups, caucuses and a captivating keynote speaker, QPOCC strives to fully expand your knowledge and empower the identities of queer people of color.
The theme for this year is Fourway: Intersection of Race, Gender, Class and Sex[uality]. Under this theme, we will raise awareness on issues such as, being a queer person of color, the rise of homelessness in the queer community, what is Trans, what is a women's world, and so forth.
