As an extension of the mission of the conference, organizers hope to cultivate a safer space for creative expression and provide an opportunity to build relationships between conference participants and members of the community. They invite you to share your poetry and music around queerness, gender, sexuality, and feminism. Organizers humbly request that performers select work that respects the diverse identities, traumatic experiences, and varying abilities of this beautiful community.
