FINDING YOUR VOICE: An Equality Activism Conference at Lehigh University

Lehigh University’s Rainbow Room is hosting the 3rd Annual LGBTQIA Intercollegiate Conference this Saturday, March 29th.

Come for the ever-important and revolutionary talks about marriage equality, maintaining a LGBTQIA-friendly work environment, independent publishing, writing, trans-youth workshops, and advocacy training. Stay for the opportunity to meet queers and allies from twelve  local colleges and universities, to feel empowered in your voice and art, and enjoy sessions on sex and social media. You know, a little of everything.

Two weeks ago I (middle) got to meet Kim (right) and Trish (left) to chat about the conference and they let me plop down on the comfy sofas and gawk at the architecture of the buildings and offered me a celebratory flag. Such sweethearts. I am honored to have been invited to be part of this event!

I’ll be on a panel called “Finding your Voice on Social Media”.

My co-panelist is Nick Foti, the man who created the “Shit Girls Say to Gay Guys” video on Youtube, along with a ton of other hilarious videos, and he has MILLIONS of views and followers. I am so excited to meet him (and will surely learn an awful lot).

GO HERE to read the full-line up of sessions for this conference.

This is FREE! FREE! FREE! and open to anyone/everyone. Just make sure you register so we know to expect you. You can stay all day or come and go as you please. The first session starts at 10:00am on Saturday morning, so grab coffee,  a bagel + a seat next to someone you never met (then introduce yourself). This will be fun.
