Make an impact: Support MBLGTACC

For 28 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.
