Just Celebrating Our Truth
ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE
Let’s Mobilize Events’ 2016 Masculine of Center (MOC) Conference is the unboxing of the MOC narrative. The weekend will consist of all facets of the other side of the identity narrative.
What is Masculine of Center
Masculine of center (MOC)is a term, coined by B. Cole of the Brown Boi Project. The term recognizes the breadth and depth of identity for lesbian/queer who tilt toward the masculine side of the scale. It includes a wide range of identities such as butch, stud, aggressive/AG, dom, macha, tomboi, trans-masculine, androgynous, etc.
Butch, Stud, Boi, Trans-Masculine, Androgynous, etc – we are all a community. And it’s time to celebrate all of the intersections and discuss what is important!
Empower and affirm our differences while embracing our common goals
Discuss the concerns and issues, while prioritizing what matters in the community
Learning how to embrace all intersection in which we live and thrive and connect with the family that defines the community
Learn how to stand firm against prejudice while walking in truth in the full light of day in all capacities of life.
Let’s Mobilize – Know Your Truth
Today’s political environment is in a state of flux, where members of the LGBTQ+ Community may have to battle not only previously won battles but battles that could potentially rock the very foundation of the LGBTQ+ Movement. Knowing Your Truth has now taken on a deeper meaning. Our truth is the very perception in which our lives are navigated and circumvented in the environment around us.
How far are we from a world of complete acceptance and tolerance? Are we equipped to mobilize to further our agendas? What are the barriers to the empowerment of our community? How accessible are the resources and can they assist in taking the community to the next level?
