Queers Of Colour
Tired of the lackluster kick in the sambal and the absence of garam masala in queer events, a group of friends took it upon themselves to create a community, especially for queer people of colour. We asked, “Where are all the queer people of colour? Surely they must be out there!” And thus, QOCO was born. QOCO aims to create a community where people of colour can explore the intersection of their queer and cultural identities. We want to provide a supportive network for students who may feel isolated from LGBTQIA+ spaces and/or their cultural roots and foster connections with each other to celebrate their authentic selves.
The only society for queer people of colour on campus – meeting friends and fellow QPOC – lowkey events for “quiet gays” …and more!
We host regular events ranging from picnics, game nights, and movie nights to ice skating and parties.
We are most active on our autonomous Discord server! On here is where we tend to communicate the most in regards to events, announcements, and unfunny memes.
