Skyler Deardorff--Activities Coordinator

MEET THE QRC STAFF

Hi there, my name's Skyler. I'm a first-year at Amherst and am currently studying Sexuality, Women's & Gender studies (SWAGS) and French. I'm very passionate in my endeavors to achieve equality for all members of the LGBTQQIA community at Amherst, because I know there's a lot more to be done. I make sure to stay involved with the community by spending much of my time working in the Queer Resource Center (QRC) and being a member of Pride Alliance. My favorite thing to do is listen; so, if you have any questions regarding the queer community at Amherst, or just want to talk, don't hesitate to send me an email at sdeardorff17[@]amherst.edu.

 Amira Lundy-Harris--Office Assistant

MEET THE QRC STAFF

Hey there! My name is Amira Lundy-Harris and I’m one of the Queer Resource Center's Office Assistants. I’m a sophomore from Oakland, California. I’m a Black Studies & SWAGS double major. My all-time favorite musician is John Coltrane. Feel free to email me at alundyharris16[@]amherst.edu or say what’s up when you see me in Val!


 Nayah Mullings--Office Assistant 

MEET THE QRC STAFF

Hey everyone! I’m Nayah, I use she/her/hers pronouns and rep the class of 2017.  I spent my childhood in Maryland and my middle and high school years growing up in Tanzania, where my interest in LGBT issues started. Like many people in the community, growing up in an intolerant environment has pushed me to want to foster the most accepting and open environments that I can, starting at Amherst. I hope to major somewhere in the social sciences, though I’m still undeclared. I love to sing (just like half the college), my favorite desserts are brownies and chocolate chip cookies and can’t wait to meet you in the QRC!


 João Cipolla Baltazar--Community Outreach Coordinator 

MEET THE QRC STAFF

Hey there, my name is João Cipolla Baltazar and I'm a sophomore from São Paulo, Brazil. I haven't yet decided what I want to study, but I'm very interested in theatre, especially for community building and social justice. My other interests range from Marxian economics to the fluidity of human sexuality. My biggest passion is travelling and seeing, visiting, revisiting, discovering and enjoying the company of other people. 


 Lindon Chen--Graphic Designer

Hi! My name is Lindon, and I am a junior at Amherst, majoring in Political Science and Asian Languages & Civilizations. I started getting involved with LGBTQ activism in high school, and am thrilled to be serving as the Graphic Designer for the Queer Resource Center. I enjoy pretty fonts, matching colors and page layouts—and I don’t care how nerdy that makes me sound! I am also a resident of the Zü, where I cook a lot of Chinese, Japanese and French cuisines (my favorite foods in case you were wondering). Aside from that my passions include music, photography, traveling and technology.
