2020 Queer and Now Conference: Give Me Shelter
Register to attend via Zoom!

Join us for this year's Queer and Now Conference. The theme is "Give Me Shelter" and will speak to the various challenges that members that the LGBTQ+ community have faced in finding and creating safe shelter, especially during the pandemic. Our speakers will share some of their wisdom and their own successes in self-care, activism and creative arts to uplift and inspire attendees. Here is our line-up:

Kate Bornstein is an author, educator, and "radical role model" who has been deconstructing gender for over 30 years. According to her website: "She looks beyond the gender binary to see gender as both a conscious practice, and a playful journey." She is the author of Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us and Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws.
Julio Salgado is an undocumented, queer artist and activist. His work explores the intersections of sexuality, race, and immigration status, and he has been a key figure in the youth-led immigrant rights movement. He is the co-founder of Dreamers Adrift and the project manager for Culture Strike.
