QTPOC Open Space
April Meeting Info:
For National Poetry Month we’re excited to present:
In order to reach the sky,
one must be rooted to the earth first.
A poetry workshop with Jesse Marinero
“Brown Butch Queen”
A safe(r) space for all Queer and Trans People of Color. Centering Queer and Trans Femmes of Color. The intention of this monthly group is to provide a space to build QTPOC community in Long Beach, by engaging in discussion and celebrating queer art and literature, having skill shares, offering healing & self-care practices, as well as other topics that specifically relate to our QTPOC experience and identity.
As a gentle reminder, this group is a safe space for queer and trans folks who self-identify as People of Color. We ask that white folks not attend in order to keep the space safe for those of us that do. If you are unsure whether or not you identify as a person of color, we ask that you search for resources online to help you with the exploration of that for yourself and respect the intention of the space we have created.
Facilitators: Alli Simon & Laura Luna P
