We’re so excited about BECAUSE 2015, which is coming up soon on April 17 – 19!
Our theme this year is Developing Leaders to Empower Community and our keynote speakers Andrea Jenkins and Eliel Cruz certainly exemplify the best in leadership and activism. On Saturday and Sunday, we will offer the usual plethora of workshop sessions. Saturday night includes a variety of social events for introverts and extroverts alike. There’s a special event celebrating the publication of Recognize: The Voices of Bisexual Men with co-editors Robyn Ochs and H. Sharif Williams (Dr. Herukhuti). We’re also quite pleased to announce that we will once again offer childcare at BECAUSE. Plus, there will be a new People of Color Space at the conference.

We hope you will join us for the BECAUSE Conference as it's never been before: a hybrid event of in-person and online workshops, speakers, and social events. With Zoom producers and experienced programming staff, we are developing a new way of experiencing BECAUSE while keeping all the engagement, support, and community that has been at the core of the conference for the last 29 years.
