Dear Potential BlaqOUT Applicants,

Some of you have group registration, but you have not applied to attend. You must apply before the deadline March 23, 2015.

The links are up to apply to attend for the Second BlaqOUT Conference on April 10-11, 2015 @ University of California, Riverside.

We cordially invite all folks who self identify as Black/African American or of African Descent and as Same Gender Loving, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning or somewhere on the LGBTQ Spectrum, to apply to attend.

If you are an ally to our communities, we encourage you to attend the QPOC Conference on May 1-3, 2015 at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The QPOC Conference is open to all individuals.

Through this conference, we hope to create safe and courageous spaces that foster the discussion of issues relevant to those who self identify asBlack/African American or of African Communities on the LGBTQ Spectrum. Various Workshops, keynotes, and activities will be designed to unite our community and equip us with the resources necessary to face issues that affect us as marginalized individuals.

The general application to attend is open:
We encourage people to apply early, because of limited space and to give you time to arrange travel and registration fee payment. We will review applications weekly andprovide rolling notification regarding your application.

Once you have been selected for the BlaqOUT Conference, you have until April 3, 2015 to pay registration fees or your spot will be given to another individual. Registration is $20 with a T-Shirt included in the registrationfee. If you do not want a T-Shirt, Reduced Registration is $10.

In Solidarity,
