Violence Against Queer People of Color: A Discussion

11_year_old_suicides

A discussion at 200 Church about homophobic harassment:

There have been an unfortunate series of tragic cases of violence that have recently occurred in the QPOC community. These were instances of anti-queer bullying, name-calling, and other forms of harassment that have resulted in too many beautiful individuals losing their lives at an early age. Spectrum would like to have an open discussion about these events to coalesce as community and bring awareness to these tragic events on Wesleyan’s campus. We would also like to bring this discussion close to home by discussing experiences of violence, harassment, and safety on Wesleyan’s campus. Food will be provided.

Date: Thursday, April 30
Time: 7 pm
Place: 200 Church
Cost: FREE (+ free pizza)

    Wesleyan Higher Ups should look into their recent history before supportng, such an event. The cause is an excellent cause!!! It is hypocritical for discussion to be held at Wesleyan, since Wesleyan quietly discriminates.

    Name was Jaheem, and I agree with you. I also think their being of color didn’t necessarily have to do with it. For the most part, I think it’s bullying among youth in general.

    even though anti-gay language and bullying were used against this child, i don’t think this boy was actually queer. its kind of misleading and exploitative to call the title of this queer people of color while using Jameem as an example.
