The 2009 Anti-Heterosexism Conference is open to everyone who cares about the welfare of LGBTQ people and wants to help stop the harm caused by heterosexism, reparative therapy, ex-gay ministries and other sexual orientation change efforts. Conference attendees come from all walks of life and many professional backgrounds, including LGBTQ people, clergy, educators, mental health professionals, and allies. By attending this conference you will learn to:
- challenge heterosexist attitudes that exist on personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural levels.
- speak out publicly against the dangers of reparative therapy, ex-gay ministries, and other "conversion" efforts.
- build community to advocate for LGBTQ people and support them in leading successful, happy, and productive lives.
