Love Intersections started as a blog project between several queer people of colour (QTIPOC) who were looking for an avenue to respond to the racism experienced from and within the queer community. As a group of cutiePOC activists, artists, and friends, we find reprieve in creative and meaningful ways to build solidarity across communities through the language of love and empathy.
Our passion for social justice ties together our multifaceted dimensions of identities ranging from feminist, sex positive, racialized, settler-colonial and queer experiences. Our work is situated on the unceded, occupied, ancestral and traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples – with gratitude for the Musqueum, Squamish, Stó:lo and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
At the heart of our project, Love Intersections fundamentally operates from an anti-oppression framework – where we extend our lens to share stories of people living, breathing, surviving and dancing in the social margins. In order to promote visibility and intersectional representation on people navigating differences in race, class, gender, sexuality, dis/ability, age, spirit and spirituality, we invite you in to make artful social change with us through the radical act of storytelling.
We embrace our collective evolution – revolution – as flawed and complex human beings who fall and make mistakes. We can only hope to pick ourselves up, elevate one another, cultivate compassion, make more mistakes, and tell our stories.
