About this Event

The LGBTQ Center OC is excited to announce its upcoming 2021 Virtual LGBTQ Youth Convening, a free multi-day online conference that is organized and led by youth leaders from Youth Empowered to Act, a coalition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) student leaders and their allies devoted to gender, racial, reproductive, and restorative justice issues in Orange County.

We are proud to announce U.S. Bank, Cox Communications, the Tegan and Sara Foundation, and Pepsi as key sponsors for this year’s event!

This year’s theme is Intersect and Connect.

The 2021Virtual LGBTQ Youth Convening will take place over three consecutive Saturdays in May. Each conference session will have a dedicated theme of the day, focused on mental health and support; education; and advocacy and empowerment.

This event is open to all ages and backgrounds, such as but not limited to: youth, students, parents, guardians, families, school staff and administrators, counselors, professionals, and community members and organizers.

We invite the entire community—whether at the local, state-wide, and national level—to experience three webinars complete with influential speakers, workshop presenters, and organizations working to provide affirming practices to create inclusive and intersectional spaces for LGBTQ youth in Orange County and beyond.

We are excited to share that we will have special guest performances from local drag artists at the end of each webinar, as well as opportunity drawings for gift cards!

Family Support

Mental Health and Intersectionality

Sex and Body Positivity

Queering Financial Literacy
