The HCC is pleased to present a workshop for QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous People of Colour) students that will provide a virtual space focused on building community through conversations and shared experiences. Everything will be by invitation, so you are welcome to attend and just listen or participate as you feel comfortable. Please join our special guest facilitator & UTM Alumni, Berkha Gupta, and HCC Counsellor, Sofia Pelaez, in finding ways to prioritize healing, joy, and community.
A little about our guest facilitator, Berkha Gupta:
Berkha (they/them) is a transmasculine queer South Asian that has spent most of their life building or increasing services/programs for 2SLGBTQ+ people, especially youth and people of colour. They live in Mississauga, are a UTM alum and have a deep commitment to building community and spaces in the suburbs; they are one of the co-founders of QTBIPOCSauga and were recently the Executive Director of LGBT YouthLine, a youth-led organization that provides peer support and leadership opportunities to 2SLGBTQ+ youth across Ontario. In the last few years, Berkha has continued to shift their focus away from just building and organizing (i.e. doing things) to finding ways to prioritizing healing, joy, and community (i.e. being present) in all of their spaces.
