Creating Change Conference Update

By Charlotte Robinson, December 17, 2021

After almost two years of grappling with a global pandemic hundreds of LGBTQ activists will once again come together virtually with a shared focus for safety & action. The National LGBTQ Task Force will host the 34th Creating Change Conference virtually in 2022 with dates TBA committed to creating a safe conference while providing the always unique & powerful experience of being in community to network, learn & plan for the coming year. The theme for the conference is “Reunite and Reignite” a message that captures the energy of so many LGBTQ people looking forward to being part of a vibrant & inclusive global online space once again. The conference energizes members of the LGBTQ+ movement by generating coalition building, providing skills training & inspiring collective action. Opening keynote speaker will be Beverly Little Thunder & closing plenary will include ALOK emceed by Sandra Valls. The Susan J. Hyde Award for Longevity in the Movement will be presented to Urvashi Vaid, the Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Fund Award for Outstanding LGBTQ Leadership for Immigration Rights will be presented to Ola Osifo Osaze, the 15th Annual Leather Leadership Award will be presented to Billy Lane & the SAGE Award will be presented to JosĂ© Albino, M.A. At Creating Change 2022 attendees will build their own personal conference schedule & choose from an impressive range of workshops & programming. In this exclusive interview I talked with Mayra Hidalgo Salazar, Deputy Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force about what she hopes to accomplish at The Task Force & about the 34th Creating Change Conference before it was switched to virtual due to the omicron variant cases of COVID.
