QWOC Week Schedule of Events
QWOC Week is a multicultural pride festival for LGBT people of color.
We’re putting on this week for the first time in Boston and will appreciate your attendance and support; it is so important that we ALL – boys, girls, younger, older, lesbian, bisexual, gay, trans, straight, and allies – come together as a community to help make this week a success and guarantee it for years to come.
Join the movement. RSVP at any one of our sites, leave some enthusiasm, then spread the word!
PLEASE NOTE: The most current calendar of events will be made available on our website. So, be sure to double-check event details before you head out.
