The free, all-day event will feature workshops on exploring relationships, gender identity and the process of “coming out,” as well as community organizing and combating anti-GLBTQ bullying in schools and communities. Workshop titles include “Drag 101,” “Self Defense,” “Queer Youth Around the World,” “EMO: Depression and Suicide in GLBT Youth” and more.

Registration opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, and the workshops begin at 11 a.m. Lunch and dinner (vegan and vegetarian options available) are included. Everyone is invited to attend, regardless of age and sexual orientation.
