Youth Conference planned in Columbia SC

Gaurav Shroff, president of the Bisexual, Gay and Lesbian Association at the University of South Carolina, wants y'all to know that they are planning a conference for LGBT youth (age 13-23) this coming fall. It is titled: Reaching Out In The South: Second Annual Southeastern Conference for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered Youth, their Advisors and Counselors. It will be held at the University of South Carolina, Columbia on October 25-17, 1996.

Currently they are identifying key-note speakers and workshops for the conference, and have an initial brochure prepared. There is also some rudimentary information about the conference at their WWW site: (http://web.csd.sc.edu/bgla/conference.html), with registration forms and a call for papers. Their first deadline is July 15 for proposals.

They would appreciate any help you can provide in getting word about this conference out to people who might be interested in participating. Please get in touch with Gaurav by email (USCBGLA@VM.SC.EDU), if you have any other questions.
