World OutGames Miami will host their 4th Global LGBTQI Human Rights Conference at the Miami Beach Convention Center from May 26 to 29, reports Brittany Ferrendi in the South Florida Gay News.
World OutGames Miami, which will run from May 26 to June 4, is an LGBTQI event focused on sports, culture, and human rights.
World OutGames Miami Diversity and Human Rights Director Lynare Robbins stated, “With political uncertainty in the United States and abroad, it is even more important to maintain open dialogue and shared points of view to strive for unity and inclusiveness for all. This conference offers an in-depth global perspective on subjects, including LGBT rights, and should be attended by anyone who wants to have a voice and desires equality and acceptance.”
More than 25 speakers will attend the event. Local bisexual activist and Pridelines representative Luigi Ferrer will present a panel entitled “The South Florida Bisexual+ Network – a model for community health education and organizing.”
International representatives from places as diverse as Cuba, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the Miccosukee Reservation will speak at the opening human rights discussion.
Other speakers include engineer and universal education advocate Sylvia Acevedo, Algerian LGBTQI Activist Yahia Zaldi, and Sayato Nakata, who will speak on a panel on LGBT issues and sports in Japan.
