It'll be worth your time to attend Out On The Hill as well, and I'm not saying it because yours truly is taking part in two panel discussions. I looking forward to meeting many of the people who will be there for this September 19-22 event and getting the opportunity to hang out with my NBJC family.
And I'll also be dropping an exciting announcement of my own during the conference as well.
One of the panels I'll be participating in will be a September 21 one from 9-11:30 AM EDT moderated by Laverne Cox entitled The System. The Reality. The Solution. Honoring and Protecting the Lives of Black Trans Women
OUT on the Hill will feature an unprecedented briefing of prominent Black trans women who are activists, media personalities and subject matter experts as they discuss why it is important to be intentional about including the "T" as we develop the national Black LBGT agenda. In the midst of adversity, this community of resilient, powerful sisters has managed to come together and demand a seat at the table.Some of my fellow panelists being invited to participate along with yours truly are my fellow Texan Rev. Carmarion Anderson, Kokumo Kinetic, Danielle King, Valerie Spencer and Bali White
