The 27th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change took place in Denver, Colorado at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, February 4–8, 2015.
On Friday, approximately 50 people engaged in a Bi Visibility March around the Exhibit Hall and into the Grand Ballroom just prior to the plenary session. This was historically inspired by the visibility action that took place 20 years ago at Creating Change in 1995 by Loraine Hutchins and others.
“We wanted to make a positive and affirming gesture and say we’re here and numerous,” said bi activist and writer Robyn Ochs. The visibility action was positive and many attendees and vendors cheered the Bi March on.
This year, there were six workshop sessions that were devoted specifically to Bisexual issues, including a Bisexual/Pansexual/Fluid Caucus meeting.
The conference is run by the National LGBTQ Task Force, and attracts more than 3,500 people from all over the country every year. Presenters and participants come from all walks of life and include members of the business community, elected officials, students, faith leaders and staff and volunteers of non-profit organizations.
The five-day program featured over 350 workshops and training sessions, four plenary sessions, and tons of networking opportunities, all in the Sheraton Denver Downtown.
