The Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPoC) page is to provide MIT students with the latest resources and programs throughout the year. This page will be updated regularly, so please take a look and browse through many of the QTPoC content.  

QTPOC Programming 

QTPoC is for queer and trans people of color to hang out with each other once a month, chat, watch movies, and have support. The first part of QTPoC is chilling online and talking and building community.  How have you been?  What have you been up to? Got anything you want to share?  The second part of QTPoC might be a game, program, event.  Feel free to join at any time and bring your friends!  QTPoC is a space for LBGTQ+ students of color in the MIT community.
