The 22st Anniversary Models of Pride (MOP) Conference will be held on Saturday, October 11, 2014 on the campus of the University of Southern California. It is presented by the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s LifeWorks program. This free one-day conference focuses on the concerns and interests of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth up to age 24, and their allies. This year’s conference is themed “What's Next?”.
The Models of Pride conference offers over 100 workshops, a huge resource fair, exciting entertainment, lunch and dinner, and an evening dance with DJ. The workshops cover many areas of life that are experienced by LGBT youth transitioning to adulthood including but not limited to LGBT issues. They include “tracks” for teens, older youth, transgender youth, and foster youth. There are also a Professionals Track and a Parents Track (we expect 100 parents this year!). We will offer workshops for Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) advisors and other LGBT youth serving professionals who bring their students/clients to the Conference. A Hospitality Suite will be available to them during the day where they can relax, find resources and network with colleagues. The Resource Fair has three areas: Service Organizations, Colleges and Universities (recruiting LGBT youth) and Businesses (offering job opportunities and internships).
