Abstract:

Despite a growing number of student services directed at Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) students on college and university campuses across the country, few studies address how these students manage on campuses, and even less information is known about Queer and Trans Students of Color (QTSOC). Within the dearth of current LGBTQ literature, the majority of QTSOC literature focuses almost exclusively on gay and bisexual Black cisgender male students. These students often report findings of racism, heterosexism, and isolation. Given this gap in the QTSOC literature, I address this research question: What are queer and transgender students of color experiences with cultural centers at a predominantly white university? This qualitative study was grounded in Queer Critical Theoretical Perspectives (QCP) and its antecedent Critical Race Theory (CRT). I conducted 45 interviews with 15 current queer and transgender students of color from one large predominantly white university. The findings suggest that even though there are spaces marked for specific identities, students who live at the intersections of race, gender, and sexual orientation still have a difficult time finding places on campus where they can be their full selves without oppressive experiences such as racism, heterosexism, transphobia, and gender bias.
