Event description



The co-organizers wanted to create a space where those in the LGBTQ+ Community who identified as Masculine of Center (Stud, Butch, Boi, Non-Binary, Androgynous, trans-masculine, etc.) had a platform to discuss those concerns, topics, and, triumphs that were unique to the MOC intersection. This conference is intended to be a space where these conversations are unboxed, and topics that are circumvented in other spaces are laid bare and addressed. The MOC conference is a place where these individuals and their allies will put it all on the table.

The MOC Conference Objectives are:

  • Fostering a spirit of cooperation and resource sharing among the community
  • Providing a platform to mobilize and act on matters of mutual interest
  • Representing the collective views of the multi-faceted LBT community
  • Fostering a strong sense of empowerment and self-realization

Since the inception of the MOC Conference, the community has been rallying behind a cause with even more fervor, creating the drive to implement continuity, empowerment, and change. This has been brought to the forefront, the wiliness to unbox crucial conversations. The community has finally decided to collaborate and drive towards an empowered tomorrow. Now, the MOC conference comprises of many LGBTQ+ community leaders, organizations, and celebrities, it represents major producers, distributors, educational organizers, political/consumer groups.
