Welcome to this week’s edition of INTERLINQ-ED, where we highlight news and media about and relevant to LGBTQ people of color, diaspora, and racial or ethnic minorities around the world.
Victoria is a queer white ally who’s passionate about media, transgender issues, and the intersection of gender, race, and sexuality.
From a QWOC in Japan: “I have learned that I cannot do it on my own and that as much as I perhaps took credit for what I knew and what I learned, I realize that I always had a constant source of support to fall back on. Now that these friends – my family – are many miles away, I am left to navigate this world, for the first time, as a true outsider.”
It is with great excitement that we welcome Asha Carter, our first Development Intern, to the QWOC+ Boston family! She’ll be the lead coordinator of our Youth Development Weekend in May, and helping us get ready for QWOC WEEK!
