At least 200 undergraduate and graduate students from Baltimore area colleges and universities are expected to attend the 2014 B’More Proud LGBTQIA Leadership Summit on March 30. The daylong event, whose theme this year is “Breaking Boundaries: The Intersections of Our Identities,” will take place at Levering Hall on the campus of Johns Hopkins University.

At the conference there will be several breakout sessions, a resources fair whereby organizations, companies and agencies offer information and answer questions, and entertainment at the end of the summit. Comedian Julie Goldman will perform.

The planners are developing the topics and leaders for the upcoming summit. Author, performer and trans-bi activist Julia Serano will be a keynote speaker as well another activist, Zach Wahls. Three years ago, Wahls gave moving testimony to the Iowa House Judiciary Committee to support his two moms when that legislature was considering a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

There is no charge to participants and meals will be provided. To register as a participant, to host a breakout session, to volunteer or take part in the resources fair, visit bmoreproud.org.
