Community Summit: Exceeding Expectations

One of my dreams has been for the Oklahoma City LGBT community to do a better job of networking, communicating, and working together. Yesterday was the first annual LGBT Summit. Over forty organizations were represented. Around 140 people attended.

The meeting was held at the downtown public library in their stunning conference facility that was perfect for the event.

There were sessions on the role of religious insitutions, youth issues and senior issues, running for office and lobbying your legislator, transgender issues, activism & advocacy, getting your organization better organized, etc. We had a number of elected officials participate and presenters came from as far as Tennessee & Wyoming. I met a number of leaders in our statewide effort that i hadn't yet met.

At lunch I almost cried with joy because here were all these people in the same room together, working together. It was a wonderful event.
