Make an impact: Support MBLGTACC

For 27 years, the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC) has brought together students from around the United States for a few days each year to learn and grow through the knowledge and experiences of others. In the course of a weekend, a student can attend half-a-dozen workshops, catch keynotes by activists and thought leaders, meet with nonprofit leaders and grad school admissions representatives, and bear witness to the talent of locally and nationally competitive drag performers. All of this is made possible, in part, through the generous support of our friends, community partners, and corporate sponsors.

Your support of MBLGTACC will mean two important things. First, all of this work will be possible. As a all-volunteer student planning team, all gifts to MBLGTACC will go directly toward programming, resources, and operations that support the conference and our students. Second, you’ll be advancing our commitment to economic justice. We pledge to make our programs accessible to all students and young leaders regardless of their financial means. We'll limit costs for participation and materials, and make additional support available to those with limited access to resources. Your support turns this commitment into action.

There are several ways to support MBLGTACC 2019:

MBLGTACC will offer nonprofits, graduate programs, businesses, and other organizations the opportunity to exhibit at the Century II Convention and Performing Arts Center for the February 2019 conference. Exhibit space is limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. This is a great opportunity to promote your organization or program to students, potential employees, and the queer and trans+ college community.

The Exhibit Fair will take place Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, location TBA. Each exhibit table comes with two exhibitor registrations that allow you access to the exhibit space. We ask that exhibitors wear their exhibitor name badges at all times within the conference space, and encourage any who are interested in attending programs to be sure they register for the conference separately.
