Virtual Creating Change Conference

By Charlotte Robinson, November 19, 2020

Thousands of LGBTQ advocates, activists, leaders & allies will gather virtually for the 33rd Creating Change Conference from January 28th through January 31st. The National LGBTQ Task Force Creating Change Conference is the foremost political, leadership & skills-building conference for the LGBTQ social justice movement. The Annual State of the Movement Address will hold more meaning than ever this year as the country faces unprecedented challenges & the Task Force officially transfers leadership of the organization from longtime Executive Director Rea Carey to incoming Executive Director Kierra Johnson. Dominique Jackson best known for her leading role of Elektra Abundance on the FX television series Pose will be this year’s opening keynote speaker & there will be several performances by Big Freedia. Closing Keynote Speaker will be activist author adrienne maree brown & Sandra Valls will host the event. Andy Garcia, Director of Creating Change stated, “I am thrilled that we have Big Freedia, adrienne maree brown & Dominique Jackson participating, along with thousands of LGBTQ+ activists & allies. When Creating Change begins we will be living under a new White House administration & hopeful but also facing a possible sea change in the status of queer rights from the Supreme Court & needing to see real institutional & policy change for racial & economic justice. All while we continue to grapple with the impact of the pandemic & other obstacles we face as a community. Given its virtual nature, we hope more queer people than ever before participate in Creating Change, as we need each other now more than ever.” For More Info & Register…
