BOP will have an exhibitor booth at the Twin Cities PRIDE Festival again this year! Our booth will be open on Saturday June 23, and Sunday, June 24 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in Loring Park, 1382 Willow Street, Minneapolis, MN 55403. We will be in the Blue section on West 15th Street in spaces B20, B22, and B24. We will need volunteers to set-up and tear-down the booth, hand out BOP info and stickers, meet and greet community members, and run the BOP store! Volunteers can sit or stand under the shade of the tent. Volunteers will get free water, light snacks, and sunscreen! You may choose multiple or partial shifts.

BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
