Rainbow/Black Power flagQPOC = Queer People Of Color, an acronym frequently used for student groups.

Not to be confused with BIPOC, which has nothing to do with being bi. (It’s either “Black & Indigenous people” or “a longer way of saying People of Color”, depending on who’s using it.)

The original concept for “how Bianca and Timothy/Camellia met” involved Timothy MC’ing a college drag show. Which was sweet, but ended up being Early Installment Weirdness considering how Timothy’s hobbies and interests developed as the comic went on, and I figured “advising a charity event” was more in line with what she’d actually be into.

Sparrow: I guess that would explain why Camellia was so calm about the whole thing. But why am I guessing about this? You’re the one who knows her!

Bianca: Barely! We met when she did some advising for that charity show QPOC ran sophomore year. And you know how that year was for me.

I’d be surprised if she even remembers my name.

Sparrow: Were you secretary that semester?

Bianca: Well . . . technically . . .

Sparrow: Do you still have the list of the advisers’ phone numbers?

Bianca: I don’t feel right about this.

Sparrow: Hey, you’re the one who wanted to take care of a Being. I would have been fine with a cat. A nice, low-maintenance cat. But nooo . . .
