QWOC WEEK IS COMING!
If you are queer and you live in Boston, it’s nearly impossible for you not to have heard of QWOC+ (Queer Women of Color and Friends). Be mindful of the plus (+); it’s one of the only groups in Boston that organize social events that draw out all members of our LGBTQ community regardless of gender, sexuality, and race. Which really is something that we have been needing here for a while. I’ve been to QWOC+ events and I have to admit, they were a blast. And it’s nearly impossible to get me to leave my house. 

That’s why QWOC+ Week is going to be kind of a historical event. Never before has there been a week-long multicultural pride festival for LGBTQ people of color anywhere in the United States. Literally, all of these intersecting communities (Truth Serum, Fenway Community Health, Center for New Words, Queer Asian Pacific Alliance, MadFemmePride, MIT, PFLAG, Spectra, and more) came together to put together the program this week, which includes discussions on health services, relationships, and identity, artist showcases, film screenings, outings, beach parties, bar crawls, you name it.

In fact, we’re going to be performing at the artist showcase on August 6, at 7pm for the QWOC+ Spoken Word Showcase at Middlesex. Kit and I will be doing some pieces early on in the night as well as at the end, so come support all of our queer artists of color and allies, and stay till you’re all danced out.

All this is to say that we love QWOC+. We love them, love them, love them. They’re doing amazing work that is essential to building our community in Boston. So let’s party!
