About this event

Trigger Warning

Our Moderator and Panelist will be speaking openly and honestly about their experiences and how they may help you.

With the current divisiveness and ongoing attacks poised at the trans community as of recent, we thought it necessary to combat intolerance and injustice with education and insight. This pride month, “Queer Conversations,” will be collaborating and combining with our trans-centric “Transgressions” event to highlight the history of the trans-identity.

In this special “Queer Conversation,” we will be discussing varying topics ranging from the evolution of what it means to be trans, how far the movement toward equality and equal protection has come, how far the movement has left to go, the current state of affairs, and what we as both members or allies of the community can do to help.

Organizer Baton Rouge Pride

Organizer of Queer Conversations: Transgressions

Baton Rouge Pride Inc. is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization (with IRS 501(c)3 recognition, for interested contributors). We are dedicated to providing resources, education, cultural events, and other community-building activities for the South Louisiana GLBTQ community and its friends, families and allies.

Founded in 2006-2007, Baton Rouge Pride (also known as the Baton Rouge Pride Fest) originated as a secular outreach of MCC of Baton Rouge. It was designed as a gathering and celebration for the GLBTQ community in the area but also as an educational and community building event centered on a community resource fair. Since that beginning with less than 500 attendees and 15 resource fair participants in 2007, it has grown to be Louisiana's largest pride celebration -- with more than 7,500 attendees and nearly 75 organizations in the resource fair tin 2015. Better yet, since 2010, it also is the South's (if not the world's) largest indoor, family friendly pride celebration.


Our resource fair has continually grown to encompass more emphasis on community health, well-being and unity - a major component each year is a variety of health education and testing services. The overall event blends education about community resources, health counseling, family activities, area artists performers and more. A mix of education about health and wellness with entertainment and fun draws people from all walks of life! Over all nine years of the event, sponsors and grant providers, as well as an all-volunteer board and staff, have helped us to keep it as a free admission event, allowing everyone to participate in this day of community.
