LANSING, MI—The 32nd annual Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC) is headed to Marquette, Michigan from October 25-27, 2024. Nestled along the shores of Lake Superior and amongst the idyllic natural beauty of the Upper Peninsula, Marquette is home to Northern Michigan University, a presenting partner of the gathering. It is located on the ancestral homelands of the Anishinaabe Three Fires Confederacy.
MBLGTACC—a program of the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity—is America's largest and oldest continuously-held conference for queer and trans+ college students and young adults. The theme of the 2024 conference is We Are Everywhere.
“We’re thrilled to partner with NMU to host MBLGTACC in Marquette, centering queer and trans people from rural and small communities while showcasing Michigan’s picturesque upper peninsula,” said Justin Drwencke, the Institute’s executive director.
Attendees from across the country—students, young adults, and higher education professionals—are expected to attend.
Conference registration and a call for workshop proposals are tentatively scheduled to launch in April, with announcements of speakers and entertainers to follow.

At the Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, we envision a liberated future where generations of queer and trans people live in abundance and their joy, knowledge, and experience guide our shared existence. We build community among queer and trans youth (and those who support them), expand knowledge of sexuality and gender, and create lasting change across the Midwest through advocacy and expansive programming.
