What is MBLGTACC?

The Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC) is an annual conference held to connect, educate, and empower LGBTQIA+ college students, faculty, and staff around the Midwest and beyond. It has attracted advocates and thought leaders including Angela Davis, Robyn Ochs, Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, Kate Bornstein, Faisal Alam, and LZ Granderson; and entertainers and artists including RuPaul, Todrick Hall, Margaret Cho, J Mase III, Chely Wright, and Loren Cameron. Learn more about MBLGTACC.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of MBLGTACC 2018 All Roads Lead to Intersectionality is to educate queer and trans Midwest college students to empower and celebrate their identities, while enabling them to resist oppression and develop resiliency against personal and societal injustices.

Our Pillars

Celebration

We need to allow ourselves moments of joy and laughter, especially in safe spaces amongst our community. Happiness drives us all in different ways and can always be enjoyed together.

Resistance

We encourage challenging the institution, in whatever form or direction it may take, endlessly and fiercely using our community resources and personal strengths. Giving up is not an option.

Empowerment

One of the most detrimental effects of marginalization is the theft of personal agency. Our community has been silenced for too long, and we must strive to find the power to advocate for ourselves.

Education

Knowledge is an invaluable resource to further our cause and can never be taken away from us. Lifelong learning is critical for the betterment of ourselves, our community, and our movement.

Resiliency

Overcoming societal obstacles and adversity is a fundamental aspect of our community’s identity. We seek to cultivate inner strength and resolve, as they are the key to building stable foundations and facilitating growth.
