The goal of the #MeTooLGBTQ conference is to increase culturally competent services for victims/survivors of sexual violence and relationship violence that identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. This three-day conference is the only conference of its kind in the country and is the first step in a long-term fight to end sexual and relationship violence.

Registration is open to victims/survivors of sexual violence, interested community members, mental health professionals, members of the clergy, and service providers who are looking to create change.

Nationwide, approximately 4 out of 10 gay men (40.2%) and half of bisexual men (47.4%) have experienced sexual violence besides rape at some point in their lives, compared to 1 in 5 heterosexual men (20.8%). A large majority (61%) of bisexual women and 44% of lesbians have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner, compared to 35% of heterosexual women. 47% of our transgender siblings experience sexual assault in their lifetime, and the American Academy of Pediatrics has identified gender nonconformity as a risk factor for childhood sexual abuse or rape.
