Queer & Trans Resource Center


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, 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.

 



 



The Queer and Trans Resource Center (QTRC) is looking for enthusiastic, passionate students who are interested in issues affecting LGBTQIAP+ students at San Francisco State University. This internship program is unpaid and a semester-long, focusing on LGBTQIAP+ events, services, programming, and resources. This internship is intended to help the LGBTQIAP+ community at SFSU grow and strengthen its leadership skills through the pursuit of social justice and activism.

The Queer & Trans Resource Center offers plenty of volunteer opportunities in addition to the internship program!

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-homo normative structures currently in place.
