Queer and Trans Students of Color

QT SOCs: A New Community Space for Queer and Trans Students of Color!

QT SOCs is designed to provide community for queer and trans students of color through social meetings and fun events. This is a space to explore your intersectionality and blur the lines between race, gender, and sexuality.

The term "people of color" refers to those who are Black/African American, Indigenous, Asian/Asian American, Latina/o/x, Pacific Islander, Arab/Arab American, and/or Multiracial. The term "queer" is being used here as a term that includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, and/or asexual/aromantic people. 

See below for SP 2022 QT SOCs events and how to register. If you have questions or need to participate, contact us at lgbtrc@sa.utah.edu or 801-587-7973.
