UC Santa
Barbara Hosts 19th LGBTQIA Western Regional College
Conference

The University of California, Santa Barbara, will host the 19th LGBTQIA Western Regional College Conference February 13-15.

This year's theme is "Cultivating Our Roots, From the Ground Up: How Deep Is Your Love?" The conference is designed to provide a place for people of all identities to feel safe and welcome as well as educate and empower queer youths, students, families, professionals, other community members, and allies. It also aims to provide opportunities for dialogue, networking, and fostering activism on issues at the local, state, and national levels.

Since its inception, universities across California have hosted the conference, bringing hundreds of students to their campus for a weekend of workshops and entertainment. Confirmed speakers and entertainers for this year include, Faisal Alam, MEDUSA, Mia Mingus, and Good Asian Drivers. The previous two conferences have been at University of California campuses -- Los Angeles in 2008 and Riverside in 2007.

Registration is $35 for college students and $45 for nonstudents. Visit LGBTQIA.org/conference2009 for more information. Registration questions can be addressed by calling (805) 893-5847 or e-mailing rcsgd@sa.ucsb.edu.
