Silvia Mavares '18
Outreach Coordinator

Silvia

Hi there! My name is Silvia, and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I'm a junior currently studying Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought. I grew up in Miami, but I am originally from Venezuela. As a Program Coordinator, I hope to create events that bring people together to talk about relevant issues in productive ways. I'm a huge fan of dogs, cooking, and the Boston Red Sox. I urge everyone to stop by the QRC because it's an amazing place where remarkable conversations happen. If you have any questions or suggestions, email me at smavares18@amherst.edu!


Matthew Holliday '19

Matthew

Hey everyone! I’m Matthew Holliday, I use he, him, his pronouns and I am the outreach coordinator at the QRC! I hail from Brooklyn, NY from the predominately black neighborhood of Bedstuy. As a Theater & Dance and Black Studies double major, I hope to liberate black artsy, specifically queer POC art and culture, and expose relevant information about our inherited queer histories through movement and text. As your outreach coordinator, I aim to maintain the integrity of the QRC and its communication between the larger Amherst and Five-College community.

Program Coordinator

Ramona

Hello! My name is Ramona, and I use she/her/hers pronouns. I am a sophomore and am a prospective Biology and Neuroscience major here at Amherst. I also am an active member of the Glee Club and the yearly musical. Besides my pronounced interests in musical theatre and science, I am an incurable trekkie, and can be found watching DS9 most nights while not busy. I also consider myself a bit of an artist when I have the time. The QRC is a wonderful, open space for all, and I would encourage anyone who can to stop by and visit sometime. If you have any questions regarding being trans at Amherst, have a questions about my role at the QRC, or just want to introduce yourself and say ‘hi,’ please email me at acelis19@amherst.edu!
