Abstract
A phenomenological study yielded rich data about the essence of being a queer student leader of Color. Six participants described a desire to be authentic, culturally competent, and collaborative leaders, but they faced challenges enacting these forms of leadership as they navigated oppression (e.g., disrespect, stereotyping, tokenization, exoticization) within a predominantly White queer student group. These experiences prompted them to consider creating a queer people of Color group for support.
