Queer & Trans Students of Color (QTSOC)

Queer & Trans Students of Color (QTSOC) seeks to support students in exploring the intersectionality in their lives with a particular focus on race, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. We will be building community over snacks and food for thought. Some examples include: discussing power and privilege through current events or the Clark context, identifying resources, community members, and events that allow support, using story sharing to build community, and learning about our histories. Our goal is to build community and create an inclusive space to question and dialogue using our personal experience, queer theory, culture, and activities. QTSOC meets from 4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. bi-weekly on Wednesdays.  Contact for more information.
