Quare Square gives voice to Chicago’s queer community of color

By Dawnn Anderson

Quare Square Collective, Inc. is a non-profit that supports queer artists of color in the South Shore neighborhood. Approximately 50 people attended Jeffery Pub Tuesday for open mic night, to amplify queer voices of color in a safe poetic space.
