“Towards a Queer Homeland:
Bridging Communities and Resisting Hate”

Friday and Saturday, November 9-10, 2007
University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV)

In an era where factors such as globalization, anti-immigrant sentiments, war, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of hate based on gender and sexuality resonate in queer peoples’ lives, this conference hopes to generate community by fostering dialogue between students, scholars, activists, and professionals.   Whether through academic scholarship, activism, artistic expressions, or community organizing and outreach, we dream of a queer homeland where human, women’s, trans, and queer rights have no impediments.
