::: WHO WE ARE :::

FCQ! (For Colored Queers) is a community based Queer and Transgendered People of Color (QTPOC)-centered project. Currently, FCQ! consists of a blog where we hope to publish QTPOC work that is socially and politically relevant to our diverse communities, through addressing social, racial, gendered, economic, and Queer justice. Additionally, FCQ! is producing a performance series featuring QTPOC artists, addressing various themes as well as creating space for facilitated dialogue around those themes. The first evening of performance is set for March 2, 2013, and is focused on issues of Colonization and Survival. We recognize the paucity of QTPOC-centered spaces, and aim for FCQ! to play a role in filling a need within our communities, by becoming a tool for social and creative justice, radical healing and politics, and genuine community building.


::: WHY WE DO IT :::

Queer and Trans* People of Color need more spaces that are centered on our needs, our healing, justice in our communities. We need more spaces where our voices can be heard, where our politics can rail, where our love can glow. By investing in intellectual, creative, and literary art, as well as anti-oppression-based dialogue, by QTPOC, for QTPOC, we are reinforcing the fact that our communities matter, that we are talented and powerful and should be heard, and that social change begins in small but meaningful ways that change us and our worlds.

::: A NOTE TO NON-QTPOC GUESTS :::

If you do not identify as a Queer and/or Trans* person of color (QTPOC), please be respectful of the fact that this event is primarily about QTPOC, with intent, and for a reason. We will not tolerate any form of bigotry in this space, or ever, anywhere. We recognize the need for allies, and welcome you to come, listen, learn, and share this evening with us!

Thank you!
