Tracy Garcia Assistant Director Bio | Email
Tracy L. García (pronouns: she/ella/they) is a queer high-femme, first-generation Xicana from South East Los Angeles. She has over 6+ years of experience working in LGBTQ Resource Centers at the University of California. She centers her educational advocacy in bringing awareness and visibility to the inequities and experiences of queer and trans Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTBIPOC). Tracy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz and has been fortunate to work at her alma mater for the last few years. Some projects she is proud of organizing at UCSC include the 2017 Queer & Trans People of Color Conference, the inaugural Stonewall Speaker Series, and Noche de Jotería to celebrate queer and trans Latinx communities in honor of Pulse. Outside of her professional life, Tracy enjoys spending time at the ocean, dancing to cumbias with her friends, and singing her favorite songs at karaoke. She is also passionate about queer and trans inclusive Reproductive Justice and deeply values working in community spaces that advocate for the liberation of QTBIPOC folks through artistic modalities. Tracy is excited to serve in the Assistant Director role for the LGBT Resource Center at UC San Francisco, and is looking forward to connecting with students and campus partners come November.
