The 13th Annual
Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA Conference
Hindsight is 20/20: The Past is a Mirror to the Future
November 7-8, 2020

 

 

Greetings! We are happy to announce Bloomsburg University’s 13th Annual Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA Conference to be held November 6-8, 2020 free of charge. This year’s conference will be held virtually, due to the ongoing pandemic, and our hope is this provides the opportunity for even more attendees.

The Town of Bloomsburg recently made news when members of the Bloomsburg Fair Board of Directors did not intervene to stop a transphobic incident. For us, this incident where we live, work, and study reinforces the need for college campuses to create safe spaces, even digital ones, for members of historically marginalized groups to be seen and heard.

Since its inception, the primary goal of this Conference has been to serve as a venue for fostering interactions, collaborations, and friendships between LGBTQA individuals and groups across the region. This goal is still at the heart of the Mid-Atlantic Conference and thus coming together matters. We hope that you will join us this fall to continue conversations, build action plans for the future, shape the ways we see ourselves, and shape the ways our communities see us. Until then, be safe, stay healthy, and remain kind.
