Submit! Nearly There is a zine project meant to address the serious absence and silencing of stories about the experiences of queer people of color.


Our Annual Spring Social for LGBTQI People of Color and Allies is on April 24th!

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on April 9th, 2010

Calling all fierce femme’s, posse bois, sexy studs, proud trans, genderqueer and non-conforming friends and all! The sun is peeking out, the layers are coming off, and the time to strut back into the social scene and be seen is upon us…

  • Are you interested in meeting and /or networking in a space where you can bring ALL of yourself to the table?
  • Are you tired of having not many options besides nightclubs to meet cuties? [Real talk.]
  • Are you new-in-town and seeking a multicultural/multinational queer community in Boston?
  • Are you looking to add more members to your already tight-knit posse just in time for the summer?
  • Do you like the color, purple?
  • Do you dig diversity?

If you nodded at any of those questions, then our 2010 annual spring social is for YOU. FYI Co-hosting this spring soiree are the friendly and the sexy of Men of Color Creating Change.

Can it really get much better than this? (Well, Lady Gaga isn’t returning our calls… so, no)
