The Northeast Queer & Trans People of Color Conference is the annual gathering for all queer- and trans- people of color in the northeastern region of the U.S. We aim to cultivate a collective where QTPOC can network, dialogue about and grow around the complexities of our intersections within and beyond the LGBTQ+ spectrum. The conference strives to provide unity, validation, and education for our attendees. Through building solidarity within our own community we empower future leaders, increase visibility, and produce positive impacts for the lives of QTPOC everywhere.

This March, we are celebrating our 5th year running at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Past conferences have been held at Princeton University, NYU, Brown University, and the University of Vermont, with over 200 people in attendance. We strive to cultivate a space where QTPOC can network, grow, and dialogue about the complexities of our intersections within and beyond the LGBTQ+ spectrum.

The Northeast Queer & Trans People of Color (NEQTPOC) Conference strives to provide unityempowerment, educationvisibility, and validation for all queer- and trans- identifying people of color in the northeast region of the United States. We are excited to invite you to build, connect, and celebrate with us!
