The Queer of Color Fest is an event to celebrate queer of color artists and scholars, to provide a venue to showcase their work (films, performances, music, art, writing, research, etc.), and to open up a safe space to hold much needed discussions of intersectionality and how intersections of identity affect work generated by queer of color individuals.

All events are free and open to the public.
