To Exist is To Resist: Queer People of Color Conference 2013

The Queer People of Color Conference aimed to empower queer students of color by providing them with the tools, spaces, and dialogue to empower themselves. We aim to do this through proactive engagement and critical analysis. The Queer People of Color movement is not simply a reactive movement; it is a proactive movement that focuses on creating and analyzing our own spaces so that we are able to understand and help our communities. The theme for this year was “To Exist is to Resist: Empowering our Roots Through Activism, Community, and Intersectionality.”

A special shot out to Cal State Fullerton and their ability to make it all happen at the last minute. Next year, UCSD will host the event on their campus. You will only find thumbnails below.

Fortino, UCSC’s Familia X leader, is reading a poem that he wrote outside the building after the closing ceremonies.
Here is a poem that I just wrote:
To be
To want
To see
To live
To love
…Freely.
That is why we are here.
We are all leaders reconstructing
the landscape that we call home, family and identity.
We are called forward through social in-justice
to bring light to that which has been made ominous.
We support each other despite the dramas and narratives that keep us
fighting, arguing, politicizing and in conflict amongst each other.
We are no longer lost because we have found each other.
Now, we must be the foundation for all those who do not have the privilege to attend these events and speak to them in language that they too can understand. We should expect rejection and hardship as a given, knowing that this will make us stronger.
My ancestors would be proud of you, of us, as…
We are
We want
We see
We live
We love
…Freely.
