1st World Outgames:
A High-Level International Conference on GLBT Rights:
"The Right to Be Different"
"The Right to Be Different", the largest ever international Conference on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights, involving 2000 participants from around the world, will be held in Montréal on 26-29 July 2006, just before the 1st World Outgames.
The conference will include 7 plenary sessions (an opening dinner, a closing lunch, and 5 other plenary sessions in between), at each of which the 2000 participants will be addressed by invited keynote speakers. There will also be 5 workshop sessions, during each of which participants will be able to choose from a list of up to 75 workshops (or a total of up to 375 workshops during the Conference).
The purpose of the Call for Proposals, by the International Scientific Committee that is organizing the content of the Conference, is to solicit proposals for the workshops. Allowing 3 or 4 speakers per 90-minute workshop, there should be somewhere between 1100 and 1500 speaking slots. Thus, it is expected that the majority of the 2000 participants will speak in a workshop. Proposals are welcome from any person who is interested in the goal of equality for GLBT persons, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
