All Encouraged to Attend 7th Annual SUNY Pride Conference
All are invited to the 7th Annual SUNY Pride Conference on October 18 & 19, 2019.
This year’s theme, Celebrating Our Histories, Envisioning Our Futures aligns with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots that many recognize as the linchpin event that fundamentally changed the course of history for LGBTQIA+ people both here in the U.S. and around the world.
For this year’s SUNY Pride Conference, we encourage participants to reflect on the ways that our histories—and herstories—need to be celebrated and continually uncovered from hidden corners of sociocultural days past as one way of embracing our individual and collective journeys. In doing so, we also encourage participants to consider envisioning a future that none of us are guaranteed—futures that challenge us all to do better by our LGBTQIA+ ancestors, LGBTQIA+ siblings, our current selves, and our future selves.
This year’s keynote will be Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that resulted in marriage equality being passed in 2015. He has an incredible story to tell and we are very excited to bring him to our campus.
