Akshara Balakrishnan signs on as a Cohort Operations and Programs Coordinator at the Q-Center


Akshara Balakrishnan, Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies ('21), is now at the UW Seattle Q-Center, working on creating a cohort for trans femmes of color. This space is open to both UW students and non-students alike. Akshara, who was GWSS Student Representative for the 2020-21 academic year, is excited to work alongside her peers in developing this cohort and utilizes her GWSS studies to intentionally make space for our community of trans femmes of color. She is mindful about ensuring that this space decenters cis/het and white identities and harms and is a brave space for individuals to confidentially meet and support one another.
