About Us Mission/Vision: We are committed to intergenerational community building and promoting conversations across the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and gender identity. We focus on the following: -sharing our personal narratives and experiences -disseminating information regarding issues effecting queer communities of color -leadership building -learning our collective histories -exchanging of resources -uplifting and sharing our creative talents singing, dancing, laughing and playing. We believe in the power of collectivity and focus on the aforementioned so that we may transform ourselves, thereby transforming our communities and our world.

QPOCC is the only community ran organization in this area that specifically supports LGBTQ people of color. There impact is large because it meets this specific need. They have successfully provided educational and social events such as storytelling events and movie screenings. QPOCC has acted as a connection for LGBTIA people of color that live in the triangle to those who live in the triad, often partnering with organizers from various places in NC. QPOCC opens up most events to the population at large, and some events are created for just people who identify as LGBTQ and people of color in order to create safe spaces. QPOCC has been devoted to building relationships, partnering with other LGBTQ organizations, and making LGBTQ POC needs and communities visible throughout NC.
