The 19th Annual Long Island Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) Conference, Long Island’s only annual GLBT-specific conference, will take place on March 10, 2014 from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Stony Brook University.
Long Island’s GLBT conference each year focuses on GLBT issues and educates and empowers its attendees to address the needs of GLBT people throughout the lifespan in their schools, campuses, workplaces and communities.
Since 1996, The Long Island GLBT Conference has provided an opportunity for hundreds of middle, high school, and college students, educators, higher education professionals, health and human service providers, and community members each year to discuss the unique needs of the community, learn how to become better advocates, and create positive change.
This day-long event, coordinated by Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY), the Long Island GLBT Community Center (The Center), and Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders – Long Island (SAGE-LI), will offer conference participants a wide range of sessions, including more than 20 diverse workshops including issues around youth, older adults, health needs, HIV/AIDS, community and school organizing, social justice and more.
Registration will open on January 2, 2014 and includes steep discounts for those that sign up early. Early-bird discount registration of $10 for students and $50 for adults is available through February 7, 2014. Registration fees include breakfast, lunch, and all conference materials.
