From the mission statement: “to aid in the development of a new kind of queer politics and activism coming out of Oberlin in which issues of class, race, transgenderism, socially transgressive sexualities, ability, and experimental/radical activism are not only important, but central. to critique and create a means of resisting the interlocking power structures which perpetuate heterosexism, racism, classism, transphobia, erotiphobia, ablism, and sexism and to establish connections (create community) between people of different backgrounds without compromising individual identity. to increase radical activism and coalition building on (and off) campus among queers and non-queers alike.”
