The Portland Black Pride Summit is an opportunity to explore our diversities & multiple identities and the ways we can stand in solidarity as we come together as a community.
The summit will be an afternoon of interesting workshops covering a wide range of topics relevant to the Black LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Allies) community, thought provoking discussions, information, community resources, and entertainment.
The 2013 theme for the Portland Black Pride Summit is “Eyes Open: Our Past, Our Present, Our Future” to focus on how far we’ve come as Black LGBTQ people here in Portland and around the world! It is our intention and hope this year to honor those who have paved the way for us to be here, those who are actively making the world a better place, and highlight and empower the next generation of Black LGBTQ leaders to continue to move toward equity, prosperity, and liberation.
Attendees will receive breakfast, lunch, and several free giveaways. We will also have free HIV testing throughout the afternoon, Black Pride t-shirts, gift cards and prizes! We have limited space so please register before we reach capacity!
