The Queer Leadership Initiative (QLI) is a semester-long leadership program for UT students. It is hosted by Queer People of Color & Allies (QPOCA) and Queer Students Alliance (QSA) as a program to increase awareness of various issues faced by the Queer community. QLI includes workshops to train students on different leadership skills and provides a safe space for students to affirm a positive Queer identity.
Workshops will be held on Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm in the Student Activity Center (SAC). The meetings will begin with an ice-breaker style game and a brief overview of various aspects of our history. Generally, guest speakers will present for the first part of the workshop and a discussion section will be held for the second part of the workshop.

The syllabus is available online on our google docs, here. The application is available here. Please submit your completed application to Brian Bolton at or drop it off at the Multicultural Information Center (SAC 1.102) by Midnight, February 10th 2011.

QPOCA's annual Drag Ball will be held on February 23rd, 2011 on the UT campus. We are currently looking for student performers.
The theme for this event is going to be Street Fabulous: A Drag Ball, which is going to be a look at queer influences present in hip-hop culture.

If you or someone you know is interested in being a performer, or would like more details, please e-mail Sam Sanchez at
