OUR  MISSION

The Queer & Trans Resource Center is based on the philosophy that all students deserve their identities to be celebrated and honored by the San Francisco State University community.

Rooted in the ancestral legacy of queer activists and visionaries and San Francisco State University’s commitment to social justice and community engagement, the Queer & Trans Resource Center endeavors to offer LGBTQQIA-related events, services, and resources to students. The Queer & Trans Resource Center will also serve as an umbrella organization linking various student organizations such as Queer Alliance, Pride Committee, and CEASE/SAFE Place that work to create events and resources for the LGBTQQIA community on campus.

With the awareness that all forms of oppression are inherently interconnected, the Queer & Trans Resource Center will additionally focus on building alliances with ethnic, political, religious, and arts communities at San Francisco State University and beyond. The center is open to all students who wish to join in our efforts to promote awareness and understanding of LGBTQQIA-related identities, issues, and culture.

About the Conference:

Queer Your Mind (QYM) is a public and free conference that utilizes ‘Queer’ as a tool of empowerment, uniting people from all backgrounds to critique and dismantle detrimental and dominant LGBTQ+ politics and realize the radical potential of the queer & trans community. The notion of ‘Queer’ employed by the conference includes, yet extends past, sexual orientation and gender in an effort to liberate LGBTQ+ communities and foster a collective queer consciousness.

QYM operationalizes the concept of queerness that respects and supports the complex intersections of one’s races, ethnicities, gender expressions, religions, socioeconomic statuses and backgrounds, nationalities, languages, abilities, and/or sexual orientations. This critical, intersectional space brings together ideas and activism in an effort to queer both mind and body to affect change in the hetero-homonormative structures currently in place.

 

QYM 2019 Theme:

Throughout history, at all angles of oppression, queer and transgender people of color (QTPOC) strive towards liberation through art, both as a healing and radical statement. Art is a tool for self-affirmation, resilience, and empowerment. To create art is to share imagination and creativity that embodies our lived experiences.

At this 5th Annual Queer Your Mind Conference, our mission is to create a space and community for and by QTPOC that embraces the depth and beauty of our power, resistance, and existence,.Therefore our workshops will be facilitated by and for QTPOC. This space is born out of frustration, bravery, and self-love. We’re here to create and hold space for storytelling, celebration, and reflection through the universal language of art.
