Several hundred queer youth (any age - 24 years old) from all over the Pacific Northwest come to share their ideas and open hearts, see keynote speeches, eat delicious food, and dance it out at a queer prom. AND IT'S ALL FREE!!!
Facilitated by queer youth and younger people ages 24 and under!
Workshops and presentations will be about 1 hour long about any knowledge or experience you want to share with the community in a safe environment. Most will be inside classrooms, and can take the form of any interactive knowledge sharing you want, whether it's a roundtable discussion with several presenters, a lecture with an informative slideshow, a performance or hands-on skill-building session, and so on! Previous workshops have been group art projects, How to Start a GSA, Drag 101, How Do You Self Care?, Race Representation in the Queer Community, Gender Identities, etc.
We encourage tying your workshop into the theme - STICK TOGETHER: LOVE & SOLIDARITY IN ACTION - although it's not a deal breaker! Interpret it in any way that inspires you! To us, the theme calls to mind how we show up for ourselves and each other in order to build relationships within and across communities and identities. We are committed to loving, healing, and preserving ourselves so we can keep doing radical work in the world!
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT IS SUNDAY, APRIL 2nd!!
