Every year the good students at UNC-Chapel Hill's GLBTSA put together a wonderful conference for LGBTQ and allied individuals in the Southeast. The 2006 Southeastern Regional Unity Conference is planned for April 7-9, 2006 and registration is now open at http://www.unc.edu/glbtsa/unity/. This year's Unity Conference will focus on LGBTQ and Faith Communities and the opening speaker of the event will be Kevin Jennings, Winston-Salem native and Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (Mr. Jennings wrote a great column in the Winston-Salem Journal a few days ago). According to an email I received from a former Board member of UNCG PRIDE!:
The 2006 Unity Conference Steering Committee would like to announce that registration is now open for this year's conference which will take place from April 7 to 9, 2006. The Unity Conference is a yearly gathering of students and community members from throughout the Southeast to discuss the intersections of sexuality and gender with other forms of identity including race, class, and faith, in a weekend of workshops, speakers, performances, and social events. This year's theme is "An Unorthodox Union: Connecting the LGBTQ and Faith Communities." Registration is FREE for all UNC students and $10 for all others, and includes admission to all the weekend's events including the Opening Dinner and Closing Brunch. Free housing is available for out-of-town students at Granville Towers. We invite you to look over the Conference website at http://www.unc.edu/glbtsa/unity/ for more information and to register now. There is also information available on the website for submitting a workshop proposal which we invite all students, faculty, staff, and community members to consider doing. Please do not hesitate to contact sarah.carucci@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
I encourage everyone to attend this conference, but you better make sure that you come to Greensboro first for the UNCG PRIDE! Prom on Friday, April 7th. COme up to the "G-spot" for the PRIDE! Prom, then head down to Chapel Hill for the conference; what a wonderful weekend that will be! Technorati Tags: , , , , , , ,, , ,
