#qi3: Queering Immigration Conference is the largest gathering of LGBTQI immigrants/previously detained/asylum seekers, organizers, service providers, legal workers, healthcare providers, community healers, and more in the world.

This year, #qi has become an international conference. We hope that you forward this information along to your international comrades that are interested in building support systems for LGBTQI migrants coming to their countries.

The Immigrant Youth Coalition (IYC) has done incredible and inspiring organizing for LGBTQI Undocumented immigrants all over the state of California. They have shown what a united front, putting their bodies on the line, and what effective organizing looks like in the fight against ICE.
Joselyn has been a force in the LBGTQI migrant community for many years. We are honored to have her as QDEP member and to award her for her organizing locally, and nationally, in the Undocumented TransWomen community!
