Models of Pride (MOP) is a free one-day conference that focuses on the concerns and interests of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth, ages 12 to 24 and their allies. The conference includes a workshop where service providers and educators can enrich their skill set to support our community. Words like camaraderie, safety and a strong sense of belonging have been used by 100’s of youth to describe this annual conference. Our program now includes an all-day parent track, where parents can have access to accurate information and resources and be able to ask questions in a safe and supportive environment.
The conference is now excepting registration for exhibitor booths.
This year LifeWorks will host MOP Saturday, October 13, 2012, at USC (University of Southern California). As Models of Pride is turning 20, this year, let’s make the Resource Fair as massive as we can and offer the youth as many resources as possible. Last year MOP had over 1000 youth in attendance…we expect many more this year.
