Kat Blaque—YouTuber and popular media contributor—joins MBLGTACC 2020 lineup
October 27, 2019
The 28th annual Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC) is excited to announce Kat Blaque as one of our keynote speakers.
Kat Blaque is an animator, illustrator and YouTuber from southern California who has been openly blogging about her life for the past 10+ years on Youtube. She currently uses her platforms on YouTube and Facebook to speak about the topics she’s passionate about as well as spread information, and cultivate conversations that encourage education across intersections.
She playfully refers to herself as “intersectionality salad” as she embodies various identities and experiences. As a woman and survivor of rape and sexual assault, she is very passionate about fostering conversations where survivors and victims alike can feel as though they have a voice. As an outspoken feminist, she’s often on the receiving end of online harassment that she’s had to learn to accept as a woman who dares to have an opinion. As a black woman, she is invested in starting conversations about white supremacy and how it’s impacted her own life as well as various others. As a Trans woman, she believes that speaking about her growth and acceptance of self is vital in a world where trans people aren’t seen as valid and their possibilities are often seen as limited.
Blaque joins blogger, comedian, and writer Samantha Irby as keynotes at MBLGTACC 2020. The final keynote and the featured speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC), a program of the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, is America's largest and oldest continuously-running conference for queer and trans+ college students.
