I'm beginning to feel like a jet-setter lately. I've been to NYC twice, DC a couple of times, I'm off to San Francisco this week, and now I'll be traveling to Dallas and Austin early next year to speak at a couple of conferences.
Creating Change: NGLTF's shining jewel for LGBT activists and leaders, the Creating Change conference is a must-attend for folks interested in movement building. Bilerico Project is partnering with the New Organizing Institute to present five sessions at the 2009 conference:
- Building Your Online Presence
- Small-Dollar Online Fundraising
- Integrating New Media Into Your Organizing Strategy
- Online to Offline Engagement
- Reaching Out to the Blogosphere
We're also partnering with Feministing for the session, "From Inclusive to Intersectional: the Joys and Challenges of Diverse Online Communities." Plus, we'll also be hosting our annual mixer. The conference runs from Feb 3-7 in Dallas, Texas.
South by Southwest: I'll be part of a panel discussion called "Engaging The Queer Community" at the SXSW conference in March. Co-panelists will include Trish Bendix from AfterEllen.com and Sinclair Sexsmith of SugarButch. The moderator will be Fausto Fernos of Feast of Fun. The conference runs from March 12-16 in Austin, Texas.
