The Together Conference 2023
Join us in October 2023 for The Together Conference
Youth can and do change the world! We have always been at the forefront of transformative, sustainable, and global change. Yet, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) youth around the world disproportionately face violence, stigma, and discrimination due to who they are, who they love, and the activism that they do. These interpersonal and structural inequalities often deny LGBTQI+ youth their human rights to education, employment, health, housing, and meaningful political participation; inequalities which have only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this, many LGBTQI+ youth are ready to face challenges and are resilient as they lead our collective journey to freedom! It is this resilience and passion which will be the driving force for continued change.
That is why we invited you to participate in The Together Conference. This strategic virtual conference will invite young LGBTIQ+ activists and youth-led, youth-focused organisations to come together and collaborate to produce a stronger movement locally, regionally, and globally.
In 2023 we are thrilled to partner with organsiations, members, and activists across Africa who are committed to enacting meaningful change for LGBTIQ+ young Africans.
This online and highly-interactive conference reflected the democratic youth engagement and decision-making practices we aim to foster in our societies. The Together Conference will recenter the ongoing work of our community, drive forward impact on a global scale, and form futures where all LGBTQI+ youth are free and equal.
