Queer and Trans Students of Color

QT SOCs: A 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 our future Fall 2022 QT SOC events and how to register. We will be back with new events for Fall 2022. If you have questions or needs to participate, contact us at lgbtrc@sa.utah.edu or 801-587-7973.
