The Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC) will be hosted at Illinois State University February 13–15. The three-day conference includes workshops on various topics that affect the LGBT community, and is an opportunity for students, allies, and advisors to meet in a safe and supportive environment.
This year’s conference theme is “Narrating a New Normal,” playing off the town’s name, but mostly acknowledging that being part of the LGBT community is becoming a new “normal.” Narration reflects the idea everyone has a story to tell about their own personal experiences. The conference will focus on the intersection between the individual and the movement.
MBLGTACC has already received great support, but requires a number of volunteers at the actual conference. There are some fantastic benefits for serving as a volunteer, including a complimentary volunteer shirt, priority seating for those registered to attend the conference, and access to a hospitality room. For those interested in volunteering, please visit the volunteer page on the MBLGTACC website and complete the online volunteer form.
