Onsite Activities


Creating Inclusive Environments Workshop

Monday, June 20  | 2:30 – 4:30 PM | Location: Room 203/204
Registration Cost: Complimentary
Who Should Attend: All attendees!

Attend a workshop led by Gin Pham and Landon Richie from the Transgender Education of Texas on Creating Inclusive Environments.

Screening of MAMA BEARS Documentary

Monday, June 20  | 4:30 – 6:00 PM | Location: Room 201/202
Registration Cost: Complimentary
Who Should Attend: All attendees!

We are proud to offer all attendees a special screening of MAMA BEARS, a film by Daresha Kyi.

MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears”—conservative, Christian mothers whose profound love for their LGBTQ+ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community—and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.

MAMA BEARS is the story of women who have allowed nearly every aspect of their lives to be completely reshaped by love. Although they may have grown up as fundamentalist Christians these two mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their children safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart.
