Building Community with Pride - LGBTQ Summit
5:00 PM
University of Montana
Description:
The Western Montana LGBTQ Community Center is proud to present "Building Community With Pride - an LGBTQ Educational Summit". This unique summit is a great learning opportunity for Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Intersex, Queer, Two Spirit, and our community Allies who are interested in educating themselves on a wide variety of topics. Sessions include LGBT Health, Intersectionality of Race, Personal Finance, Two Spirit History, Grant Writing, Teaching of non-traditional students, and much much more!

We are extremely excited to have the founders and CEO / COO of TomboyX - Fran Dunaway and Naomi Gonzalez as our keynote speakers for this event! Their Agenda? It's not a feminist agenda, it's not a gay agenda, its not a butch or fem or alphabet soup string of initials agenda. It's all those things. It's a human agenda. An agenda that says: WE ARE ALL PEOPLE!

Preliminary Schedule includes:

**First Friday Meet and Greet at the Center - Come by The Center for our First Friday Art Show and enjoy light hor d'oeuvre. It's a great opportunity to see our space and speak with our Board Members in a nice relaxed environment.

**Educational Summit - Start the day off with "Coffee Talk with Fran and Naomi", then a series of sessions throughout the day.
