The Midwest Institute for Sexuality and Gender Diversity develops and produces programs that advance knowledge of diverse sexualities and genders, empower queer and trans students to inspire sustainable change, and build community among queer and trans students in the Midwest.
The Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Asexual College Conference (MBLGTACC) is an annual conference held to connect, educate, and empower queer and trans+ college students, faculty, and staff around the Midwest and beyond.Through a mix of workshops, keynotes, entertainment, and social activities, attendees come together to learn and grow through the knowledge and experiences of others.
Over its nearly 30-year history, MBLGTACC has attracted advocates and thought leaders including Angela Davis, Robyn Ochs, Janet Mock, Patrisse Cullors, Kate Bornstein, Faisal Alam, and LZ Granderson; and entertainers and artists including Jujubee, Margaret Cho, J Mase III, Chely Wright, and Loren Cameron.
To date, MBLGTACC is America's largest and oldest continuously-held conference for queer and trans+ college students. And it remains proudly student-run.
The Transgender Justice Teach-In is dedicated to centering trans, nonbinary, and intersex knowledge, experiences, and liberation.
Our life-saving work is made possible through the generous financial support of grassroots donors. We invite you to join us with a monthly or one-time gift. Your donation provides space for queer and trans students to experience the joy of being in community and help remove barriers to accessing queer- and trans-centered spaces.
