United StatesWe are pleased to invite you to the 2010 Midwest Bisexual, Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, and Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC) at the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Madison! This year will be one-of-a-kind in its dedication to expressing the voices of marginalized peoples within the LGBTQ community. Our mission is Get Real — Confronting Privilege, Provoking Dialogues, and Building New Foundations. Our workshop presenters and speakers will further our message of inclusion and introduce participants to new and important perspectives.
The city of Madison has a long history of LGBT activism. We were the first state to include sexuality into its hate crimes legislation, and we also have numerous "out" politicians such as Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin,the first openly gay non-incumbent national congressperson, State Senator Tim Carpenter, and Assemblyman Marc Pocan. We have a vibrant queer community outside the classroom, as well as one of the most prestigious academic departments studying sexuality in the country.
We hope you and your school can join us February 19th-21st for MBLGTACC 2010. Detailed information on travel and accommodations can be found here. Registration information for the conference is available here. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Don’t want to wait until the conference to get involved? We’re actively looking for volunteers, workshop presenters, and sponsors to help make this year’s conference an overwhelming success! Explore our website for specific information on each of these areas. Regardless of where you go to school, we want you to be involved!
