Queer and Trans People of Color Collective

The Queer and Trans People of Color Collective (QTPOCC) is a weekly group for LGBTQ+ people of color at Ohio State.

QTPOCC provides space for LGBTQ+ students of color to connect and build community in a supportive environment. With the guidance of a graduate student leader, QTPOCC facilitates socialization and dialogue, focusing on topics such as the unique experiences of LGBTQ+ POC, navigating college as an LGBTQ+ student of color, coming out/living out, campus and community resources, and more. We encourage folks to come every week, but you are welcome to drop in whenever you can!

QTPOCC meets weekly on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. To protect everyone's health, this program will be offered virtually through at least the month of January. As January progresses, MCC staff will continue to evaluate and make decisions accordingly. You can register at

Note: This gathering is not an appropriate forum to fulfill class requirements for projects, papers, or other assignments. To find a program that could work for a class assignment, check out our calendar for anything that has a title followed by DICE.
