Unfortunately I won’t be there in DC because of other commitments, but had to let you TransGriot readers know that the National Black Justice Coalition’s (NBJC) OUT on the Hill Black LGBT Leadership Summit is one of my favorite events.
The 2016 edition of OUT on the Hill will be taking place September 14-17, with the theme of The Post-Obama Era: What’s Next? Since this also takes place at the roughly the same time as the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference,
OUT on the Hill has always had some collaborative panels with the CBC-ALC event and provided opportunities for OUT on the Hill attendees to access the CBC-ALC event taking place over at the DC Convention Center.
OUT on the Hill kicks off with an Issues Advocacy Day at the US Capitol on September 14, a welcome reception on Thursday sponsored by HRC, the OOTH 2016 one on Friday and the closing State of the Black LGBTQ/SGL Community brunch on Saturday.
While I won’t be in the OUT on the Hill house this year, as always I hope this event is megasuccessful, and hope my schedule will allow me to attend it in 2017.
And if your schedule allows you do do so, here’s the link to register for the OOTH2016 conference.
