Color Bloq invites you to Volume 2 of our community event, “When POC Is Not Enough”, a discussion around anti-Blackness in the LGBTQ+ community. This time, we are working with Compton’s Transgender Cultural District, The Commonwealth Club of California, the Michelle Meow Show, and more. We are bringing this conversation to a bigger audience, featuring even more voices, to talk about the ways anti-Blackness affects Black trans & queer people, the challenge of navigating spaces in the LGBTQ+ community, and share strategies for Black trans & queer people to show up for each other.
