PERSONAL & DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION We understand that some people may have concerns about providing this kind of demographic information.
It is strictly confidential and self-determining, that is, it is up to individuals to choose how they self-identify.
Please be assured that all information you provide will remain anonymous.
Any information will be used solely for statistical purposes. It will have an effect on future funding for QWOCMAP because it is one of the ways that we can ensure that our community is represented and COUNTED.
We are aware of the major limitations in data collection using U.S. Census categories, as well as the history of census categories and their effect on LGBTQ people of color and the multiple communities to which we belong. As we strive to create equity and justice, we use these categories only because we are a part of a larger data collection effort. We want to honor you, our beloved community, in all of your beautiful complexity.
We ask about disability so that we continue working to create a welcoming and accessible Film Festival.

Please answer the following questions as best you can. The U.S. Census also uses the term “Latino, Hispanic or Spanish origin”. QWOCMAP does not use Hispanic or Spanish. Additionally, we use the X at the end of words like Latinx as a gender neutral term, instead of @ or o/a. In Spanish the X is pronounced like the e in the word felices.
Please specify tribal affiliation, national identity, ethnic identity. (e.g. Aymara, Afro-Boricua, Maya, Choctaw, Anishinabe, Ohlone, Nicaragüense)
