(Note: I do not write on behalf of the NGLTF; I am an independent participant in the conference.)
Whoo! I am super excited!! There are a lot of great things about Creating Change… being in a totally queer environment, meeting amazing people with strong voices… (hopefully I don’t embarrass myself like I did at the National Equality March when I met Kerry Eleveld and it didn’t click who I was talking to. Oops!) Truly, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s National Conference on LGBT Equality is a marvelous way to spend half a week!
I wrote a number of blog posts from the conference last year in Denver, but this year, I want to be more proactive about it. First, I’m going to start a new Faces For Equality collection, so throughout the months of February and March, be prepared to meet a ton of new amazing people who are standing up for queer rights!
But, since not everyone has the same opportunity to travel to Dallas for five days, I also want to try to help spread the wealth of knowledge that will be presented!
That being said, I want to give my readers the opportunity to suggest what they’d like to learn more about. I have a few presentations I definitely want to attend, but I’m kind of open about which other workshops I’ll go to. So, to all my readers out there, what do you think? Take a look at the plethora of workshops being offered, and leave comments about what you think would be interesting! I can’t promise I’ll attend them all, but I’d definitely love to take into consideration what my readers want to actually read about this week.
Below is the full list. Please leave comments with ideas about which workshops I should attend and blog about!
(The first doc is a list of the workshops organized by topics. The second doc has descriptions for all the workshops.)
