Re: “Queer phoenix

Further, the CSQC understands that we are looking at an entirely new approach to addressing queer issues and needs in Colorado Springs. This does not mean we intend to leave anyone out: rather the opposite. We include everyone, and are creating programming and services surrounding needs that apply to all queer identities. We are approaching this by putting a special focus on the very most marginalized identities. Doing this, we will more effectively catch all identities: something that has been overlooked in the past, and is often only visible to those identities that are being overlooked. This is an example of privilege: an undeserved social advantage that we have a heavy focus on working to dismantle. The CSQC encourages anyone who might feel confused by the verbiage used in the article to see our blog post where we discuss the meaning of 'solidarity.' This is where the CSQC looks to very successful models in more progressive cities. We feel strongly that we cannot wait one minute longer to address these issues and to appoint and empower marginalized and undeserved identities toward leadership within our community. Addressing these issues first are integral to real, tangible social change.
