Back to 2009 Portland Latino Gay Pride: La Lucha

New Queer of Color Organization at PSU

The Portland State Queer Resource Center is putting out the word about a newly-formed social group for all LGBTQIA2 identified people of color and all straight allies of color!

The purposes of the group are:
** to provide a safe space for queer people of color to come together formally and informally for a variety of events throughout the year.
** to empower queer people of color to increase their visibility on campus and in the Portland community.
** to encourage social and professional ties between student groups on campus as well as other community organizations in Portland.
** to promote networking and social support amongst queer and straight students of color.

The PSU QPOC group is in the process of planning events for spring term. Some of these events will be closed events (open only to self-identified people of color), while others will be open to all.

If you have any questions or are interested in joining the planning committee, please email [email protected]

Upcoming Events:
Friday, April 3, from 2-3:30pm in the QRC. An ice cream social, open to all
LGBTQ-identified people of color and straight allies of color.

Wednesday, April 15 at 12pm in the QRC. Showing "Beautiful Boxer", a movie about a
transwoman from Thailand, I believe. Part of the Queer Awareness Week events. Open to all.

Friday, April 24 from 12-1 in the QRC. Last Friday Lunch. Bring your own lunch and hang
out. Informal, and open to all LGBTQ people of color and straight allies of color. We are
hoping this will become a monthly event.

The Queer Resource Center at PSU is located in the Smith Memorial Building, in the 4th floor stairwell (room 401).
