While we're counting down to the sixth annual Black Trans Advocacy Conference in Dallas next April, BTAC executive director Carter Brown is hitting the road for a series of BTAC regional summit events that will take place in several cities around the country.
Atlanta September 24-25 at the Phillip Rush Center, and Baltimore October 7-9 at a location TBD.
As more are scheduled will pass that information along to you.
The New York event will start at 12 PM, and if you're interested, head on over to 115 W 113th St to check it out.
While this conference is focused on Black trans people, we encourage trans people of all ethnic backgrounds to come along with allies and significant others.
The BTAC regional summits summits are also seeking people interested in starting Black Transmen, Inc (BTMI) and Black Transwomen Inc (BTWI) local chapters, joining existing local chapters, participants and regional sponsors for the Black Trans International Pageantry System (BTIPS) pageants, people interested in stepping up to become leaders in BTMI/BTWI, and people wishing to help plan the 2017 BTAC national conference.
Events like these regional summits help them get the word out about the conference and hopefully get people to come and check it out.
