The student government at Berkeley University allocated $982 of student funds earlier this year to send a delegation of "queer and Latin" individuals to a conference designed to "educate and empower queer people of color."
Berkeley's Young Queers United For Empowerment (YQUFE), the organization that received the funds via a student senate bill, describes itself on its Facebook as serving "those who identify as queer and Latin."
The funds were allocated out of the student governments contingency fund for conference fees, renting vans and two queen beds, for the 25 individuals expected to attend the conference, which took place at California State University, Northridge, about 360 miles South of the Berkeley campus.
