Note: The following is a list of resources relating to People of Color (POC). It was created to fight the erasure of POC in the overall LGBT community. A good deal of the information on this page was difficult to obtain. If you would like to suggest information on this topic, please contact the Fellowship via email at rollaUUfellows@gmail.com If you have information about Transgender POC, any that you share would be greatly appreciated. Research in this specific area has been particularly challenging.
