Southern Comfort Conference will be taking place in the ATL during the same September 20-25 period that the NBJC's OUT on the Hill is happening.
And interestingly enough, while SCC is going on at the Crowne Plaza Hotel-Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia the World Professional Association For Transgender Health (WPATH) will be having its 2011 Symposium at the Emory Conference Center from September 24-28 in the ATL
The SCC's are always organized around a theme and since the conference is turning 21 this year, the them is 'Coming of Age'. Since it's 21, that's the rationale behind the blackjack theme that you've witnessed if you surfed over to the SCC website.
To all my friends in the community heading to the ATL for this conference, safe travels, sorry I won't be there this year and maybe next year I'll try to be there for the first time since 2004.
