Mindful Queer Collective

Mindful Queer Collective (MQC) is a non-hierarchical, consensus-based collective of volunteers, organizers, and participants. While we mobilize to support individuals and grassroots organizing on behalf of queer and trans rights, we recognize a need for, and prioritize intersectionality, decolonization, and centering of voices erased within popular "LGBT"/Pride organizing. We reclaim the word "Queer" and collectivize as a group of individuals with ties to many different social justice communities. Our mission is to organize a community of transgender, queer, and marginalized people of all ages for the purpose of community building, networking for advocacy, and supporting each other. We seek to develop a model for rural queer organizing that may be used by other groups and organizations.
