2017 Out in the Open Summit


Date & Time: 
Oct 28 2017 - 8:30am - 2:00pm

October 27-29th, an expected 75 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people living in small towns and rural communities from around the Northeast will gather for the third annual Out in the Open Summit for rural & small town LGBTQ folks.

The Summit is convened by Green Mountain Crossroads (GMC), a Brattleboro, Vermont based organization connecting rural LGBTQ people to build community, visibility, knowledge, and power. Out in the Open is open to any LGBTQ-identified person of rural and/or small town experience.

This is a participatory day with no presenters or ‘experts’, rather we convene this gathering with the understanding that our daily experiences living, working, and organizing as rural and small town LGBTQ people make each of us an expert. This year the whole Summit will explore three themes through different discussion-based and hands-on sessions at the same time: Living on the Land, Art & Expression, and Organizing for Justice. These sessions will be facilitated but it’s up to the participants in those rooms to discuss and strategize about how each issue comes up in their lives and intersects with their LGBTQ identities.

A full schedule of events, much more info, and registration (required) is available at greenmountaincrossroads.org/out-in-the-open-2017.
