April 29-May 1, "Northeast Equal Rights LGBTQ Conference"



* Transgender * Lesbian * Gay * Bisexual * Queer * Ally
2nd ANNUAL EQUAL RIGHTS CONFERENCE
Boston, Massachusetts
April 29th - May 1st

* Our History * Our Movement * Our Future

In 2010 over 40 different organizations and more than 400 people attended the first ever Northeast Regional LGBTQ equal rights conference. Since then at the federal level some of the gains of our movement include: the congressional repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell; the public declaration by the courts and Obama that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, and the granting of non-discrimination protections for HUD funded housing. On a local level, we have taken huge steps forward by winning protections for transgender state employees and anti-bullying legislation, while working to maintain and extend marriage equality in the region.

All of these gains are just a step in the right direction, but the fight for full equality and unconditional justice continues. This conference will bring together LGBTQ people & allies from all around the Northeast to collaborate and strategize about how to continue our momentum.
