Apply to Attend or Submit a Workshop

The UCR LGBT Resource Center is pleased to announce the 5th BlaqOUT Conference on April 27-28, 2018 @ University of California, Riverside.

We cordially invite all folks who self identify as Black/AfricanAmerican 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 one of the regional or national LGBTQ Conferences scheduled in 2018. Please check our blogpost archive for a list of upcoming conferences.

Through this conference, we hope to create safe and courageous spaces that foster the discussion of issues relevant to those who self identify as Black/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.

Please apply by March 1, 2018
