As an attendee at The LGBTQ+ Family & Influencer Summit, you will experience..

Creation

We're doing something that has never been done before. We are bringing together LGBTQ content creators across all genres, straight parents together with queer parents, and activating allies through education and storytelling.

Belonging

Community is an integral part of our survival. LGBTQ people are one of the few marginalized populations who are born to parents that are not of the same marginalized population, and add the fact that we’ve lost so many queer elders during the AIDS crisis and now the pandemic.

Empowerment

Two days of inspirational education and connection with leaders and influencers across the spectrum of LGBTQ existence. Hear stories of triumph and success. Learn from professionals in competitive fields. Connect with one another in a fun, new space.

 

AN UNPARALLELED VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE

The platform we'll be using for this virtual event is brand new, and the Pride and Joy Foundation is so excited to be on the founding team of a brand new endeavor. Imagine if Zoom, Among Us, and Animal Crossing had a baby. That's what we're using. Very interactive and very unique! Be one of the first in the world to use this incredible new technology!

Morgen Bromell is a 28-year-old founder and technologist working to make platforms more accessible to marginalized folks through community-centric research and conscientious design. As the founder of Thurst, a dating app for LGBTQIA+ people, they continuously study all aspects of queer community building, particularly how queer and trans people use digital resources and online platforms to navigate our world and reimagine it. 

Morgen began their interest in studying the intersections of LGBTQIA+ cultures and digital platforms while in university and working as a youth activist in Brooklyn, NY. They are deeply committed to queer and trans justice and see intentional development and political education as their praxis, inspired by the Stonewall elders, queer and trans activists, and educators who guided them in their formative years. Morgen's focus on queer organizing, mindful research, and outreach has blossomed into a deep connectedness to various queer and trans communities, creators, founders, and movement workers across the world.
