Q***r Surf group challenges norms, makes 'magic' in the water

"The magic really happens when we're in the water...we get to be our full and beautiful selves."

After years of feeling she had to hide her identity on the professional circuit, Kyla Langen and her partner found a way to bring more LGBTQ surfers into a sport that hasn’t always been welcoming.

Trans Autistic People Use Our Whole Bodies to Express Joy

"Masking can be doubly exhausting for many q***r and trans autistic people, like myself, who also have to worry about how the world perceives us when we express our gender authentically."

“Just because I express myself differently than you doesn’t mean that you can’t ever understand me.”

Tori Cooper recently became the first Black transgender woman to serve on the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS and she hopes her historic appointment helps shine a light on the disparities in health care for the Black trans community.

The enduring legacy of ballroom

👇🏾👇🏾

In this talk, Michael Roberson discusses the ballroom community -- which drew mainstream notice courtesy of Madonna's 1990 "Vogue" video and Jennie Livingston's 1991 documentary Paris Is Burning -- and its ability to unify traditionally excluded individuals. These self-made families forge bonds that...

Flash Foxy Launches Climbing Courses for Women and Genderq***r Coloradans

“No one should be an asterisk. Socially, saying ‘women’ signifies cisgendered, able-bodied, and white. In line with our mission, we want our education program to create community spaces for women, genderq***r, and intersecting identities. We want all of these identities to be heard,” says Singh"

As climbing grows nationwide, Flash Foxy aims to make the sport more inclusive to women and marginalized gender identities in Colorado.

LGBTQ groups across the US consider a new flag meant to be more inclusive of the transgender community and people of color | CNN

“In late June, the Castro Le***an, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Q***r Cultural District (CQCD) in San Francisco voted to recommend to the Castro Merchants, the business association that has jurisdiction over the flagpoles, that it replace the original Pride flag in Harvey Milk Plaza with a new version of the flag that’s more inclusive of Black, brown, and transgender members of the LGBTQ community.”

Parts of the LGBTQ community are reckoning with the marginalization of certain groups, leading to more conversations and debates around the widespread adoption of the Progress Pride Flag.

There may be more Olympians who identify as LGBTQ than ever before. But there are limits to inclusion

“The 2020 Summer Olympic Games are already historic, and not just because they're taking place a year later than scheduled. This year's Olympics feature, by one count, more participants who identify as LGBTQ than at any other Games.”

The slight improvement in LGBTQ representation at the Olympics is cause for celebration, but it should also give athletes and audiences pause. Less than 2% of all athletes competing in Tokyo are openly LGBTQ.

How 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' Taught Me To Love Blackness

“This is what it feels like to fall in love with blackness. Every day, it seems, we're made to feel the deprivations and brutality that others impose upon us. “

The theory of nigrescence describes the process of developing a Black identity. Namwali Serpell says it's like falling in love — and for her, it began when she first heard Lauryn Hill's 1998 album.

Black, Q***r Joy: Resilient, Rejuvenated, and Rested

“Tara Jae, executive director at YouthSeen and also one of the amazing individuals who co-founded Denver’s first Black Pride, spoke about the need for more q***r, Black joy. More Black, trans joy; more nonbinary joy. In my journey to find my own joy, one path I cannot escape is rest. In my opinion, the key to Black joy is rest and rejuvenation.”

For many q***r, Black folks, existing in and of itself is an act of resilient resistance. To find joy and rest is imperative.

Meet Dr. Darin (D-L) Stewart! One of our speakers for the Gala this Thursday! 🙌🏾🏳️‍🌈⁠

The incoming chair of the Higher Education Department in the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver. His academic scholarship focuses on the experiences of minoritized students in historically white colleges and universities and their resistance to institutional oppressive structures, the historical and philosophical roots of white supremacy in the enterprise of higher education, and institutional response to demands for greater diversity, inclusion equity, and justice. He was born and raised in his forever-home, Harlem in New York City, and is the Black q***r trans parent of a Black q***r trans son and trans-adjacent pup, Violet. ⁠

We are so excited to have you! ✨⁠ YouthSeen
