BECAUSE ("Bi+ Empowerment Conference: A Uniting, Supportive Experience") is the annual conference of the Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP), dedicated to building empowered bi, pan, fluid, queer, unlabeled (bi+), and allied communities. The conference was founded in 1992 by a handful of bi+ activists and has grown into the largest conference centered around non-monosexual identities in the United States.

BECAUSE strives to be welcoming and inclusive - embracing the many intersectionalities of the bi+ community and encouraging people of all backgrounds and experiences to join us for this eventful weekend full of networking, community building, education, and organizing to create a more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable LGBTQIA community.

This year we're discussing taking our Place in the bi+ community, as an active voice in the larger LGBTQIA+ community, in larger social justice movements and in our homes and communities. It's time to raise your voice and take your place.

The event will include numerous activities, including:

  • Panels and Workshops by local, regional, and national presenters
  • Keynote by local activist Chong Moua
  • Community Meals 
  • Entertainment
