Queer youth of color can face challenging, isolating and dangerous living realities. On the one hand they face the same discrimination that straight people of color do, such as racial profiling, racism in educational systems or being perceived as a constant threat on the street. At the same time, they also experience homophobia and transphobia and seemingly safe spaces such as queer scenes and subcultures that don’t always provide them with what they need because of their own codes and prejudices. The intersections between racism and homo- and/or transphobia are complex and require many queer people of color to be careful in situations that are ordinary for others in order to stay alive. In this workshop we will therefore focus on self-care, self-love and empowerment for queer youth of color specifically. Besides sharing our functional and dis-functional individual survival strategies we will also focus on benefits and dangers of networks and alliances with the goal of generating more tools to get by.
