Presenting at MBLGTACC can be an enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding experience. Our workshop sessions are the conference's bread and butter, bringing together students from across the Midwest to learn and grow through the knowledge and experiences of their peers and mentors.
We encourage anyone—students, staff, faculty, community organizers, and others—to consider what knowledge and experiences they can thoughtfully and confidently bring to a workshop of attendees, and to submit a proposal. Proposals are reviewed by a committee comprising students, staff, and advisors.
Proposals closed on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST and presenters were notified of the status of their proposal in late December.
Over its 27 year history, MBLGTACC has become a destination for acclaimed entertainers, activists, and thought leaders, including Kate Borenstein, J Mace III, Chely Wright, Janet Mock, Jujubee, and others. From the very beginning, conference organizers sought to create an oasis in what Justin Connor (MBLGCC ‘94) says was seen as “a queer desert.”
MBLGTACC has also given a platform for countless local and regional leaders and performers. Much of this success is the product of rich ties to our communities around the Midwest, and we're excited to expand our circles.
At this time, we've finalized our agreements and are no longer seeking speakers or entertainment for the 2019 conference. If you'd like for us to pass on your information to the 2020 conference planning team, drop us a line.

These community welcomes serve as acknowledgements of our vast community to ensure we are centering subcommunities less visible or afforded less agency in the mainstream efforts for queer and trans liberation, bodily and sexual autonomy, and gender justice.
