The 4th Annual Queer People of Color Conference will be held at UC Davis for the very 1st time. It was previously held at UC Berkeley.

This year, the conference is shifting from a student event to a "People-Oriented" 2 Day Conference. This years theme is, "Building Communities through Art, Action, and Resistance." Everyone's welcome on April 3rd and 4th 2009!

This conference will allow individuals to come together & express a new sense of community. We'll redefine & introduce alternate forms of resisting, noting that our very existence is resistance and qpoc resist in their day-to-day lives via written, oral, thematic, artful & other means. We're aware that not all qpoc participate in "activism," but we insist simply being qpoc is taking a political stance. We'll come together to tackle issues, network in our communities, celebrate our creativity & redefine societal assumptions on what "resistance" is. The 4th Annual Queer People of Color Conference will promote that we are not a generation of apathy, we are a generation of action.

For more information about the Conference please visit our website, qpocc.webs.com , or email us directly at qpocc2009@gmail.com.

i'm white... that's a color,

i'm white...

that's a color, right?

well...more like the absence of color....

so for those of you falling in love
keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right
throw yourself in the midst of danger
and keep one eye open at night.
