At BUTCH Voices 2021, there will be:
Our theme we have selected as a team is Building Up Together. So much is going on in our individual worlds, much less across the US and around the globe. We need to connect to community now more than ever. We are experiencing reduced ways of interacting with each other for safety reasons, as well as decreased capacities mentally, emotionally, and financially. There is no lack of work ahead of us, and building up together is one way forward. The need for solidarity with queer and trans BIPOC folks in our communities continues to include various calls to action, along with the need for us to support one another across communities, even more going forward.
When we bring our collective voices into action and support one another, we are so powerful together. Being in intentional spaces filled with hundreds of like-minded and beautiful Masculine of Center community members and our allies is something that connects us to each other, and to something much bigger than ourselves.
Individual tickets for some of our conference events will also be available, as well as a conference pass to attend all events. ASL interpretation will be available. Please notate your accessibility needs when purchasing your tickets, and check each of the virtual attendance guidelines boxes in order to complete your purchase. Financial aid info available here.
More conference details as they become available.
