The QPoC Q Chats discussion group provides a welcoming and friendly environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual, same gender loving, and two spirit students who identify as people of color. Your facilitators will lead the group in a discussion each week about whatever topics the group would like to explore together, with a focus being on the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality.
Students wanting to engage in allyship and learn more about the intersections of Blackness and queerness should check out the Center's Black Queer Lives Matter partnership with the African American Student Union.
