What an Incredible Day

From our all-volunteer Board of Directors and our Executive Director, thank you for an incredible conference.

Because of you, this was our highest-attended conference!  To each of our sponsors, workshop presenters, volunteers and attendees who made this so special, we are grateful for the wonderful fellowship, education, opportunities to connect with one another in a safe and celebratory way –  and to stand PROUD and RESILIENT in the midst of such hatred and oppression.

Please scroll through the sponsors below.  These LGBTQ+ owned/inclusive businesses and service providers are here for our community every day – not just every June at Pride.   Please support them.
