Black LGBQ Youth Dissertation Study

ARE YOU OR DO YOU KNOW A YOUNG PERSON THAT IS:
1 - Black, in terms of racial identity (or bi- or multi-racial, all ethnicities welcome)
2 - Age 14-21
3 - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Queer 
4 - Out to at least one parent or primary caregiver 

Please consider taking my dissertation study exploring the experiences of Black queer youth as they navigate the coming out process within their family.

** SURVEY LINK** http://drexel.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3mHIPv9YKvQgBBX

The survey only takes about 30 minutes (max), and your participation and responses will be invaluable in helping to understand how Black families navigate, negotiate, and support LGBQ young people through their coming out process.

MN QTPOC Needlework Circle

tremblinglakes:

This is the official Facebook page for the Minnesota Queer and/or Trans People of Color Needlework Circle. It is a safe, sober, and youth-friendly space for QTPOC based in Minnesota to come together to do some needlework craft and connect with one another. 

Needle arts include: 

- Knitting
- Crocheting 
- Felting 
- Sewing 
- Embroidery 
- Cross-Stitching 
- And variations thereof 

This is a monthly group that meets up to work on needlework projects together, teach one another new skills in an effort towards sustainability, to learn new ways to help hone fine motor skills and temper anxiety, and to generally have fun and make new friends. Folks of all skill levels are welcome to join!

I am still working on setting up the page completely, but if other QTPOC that are interested in this want to keep up with the group and be informed about events and meetings and such, go like it!

if there are folks that are from minnesota and are in need of a safe space and want to get into doing needlework, check it out!
