TULSA, Okla. — At Wednesday’s City Council first Listening Session on racial disparities found in the 2018 and 2019 Equality Indicator report, a doctoral student in Black Studies at the University of Texas at Austin and Booker T. Washington alum, Noelle Janak highlighted the unspoken and unreported disparity in juvenile queer and trans youth arrest.

“My name is Noelle Janak, I grew up in Tulsa, I live in District 4, I graduated from Booker T. Washington High School, and am now a doctoral student in Black Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. I am a scholar of policing and surveillance.

Queer and trans youth represent roughly 5-7% of the total youth population, yet 13% of the juvenile justice system.

I know what it is like to grow up not only Black but also queer and in constant proximity to the criminal injustice system.

I attended BTW high school where Black and Brown students filled the TRAICE classroom. But if you looked closer, the kids in detention were also queer and trans.

We must protect our youth.
