This year, CNMC will be all about taking the privilege out of polyamory: addressing race, sex, ability, and class in the non-monogamy community. See you on Saturday, May 19, 2018!
Interested in a Newbie Lunch Discussion? For a no-pressure Q&A on the nuts and bolts of polyamory, join us for lunch. Space is limited, and registration is required. Sign up soon!
$2 of every registration goes to Brave Space Alliance
Brave Space Alliance is the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ Center located on the South Side of Chicago, and designed to create and provide affirming and culturally competent services for the entire LGBTQ community of Chicago. We aim to generate opportunities for ourselves, our families, our comrades, and our futures to engage in healing, community building, and the creation of kinship. We strive to educate, empower, and embolden each other through sharing skills, knowledge, and resources as we build towards the liberation of all oppressed peoples.
By focusing our efforts on creating space and building capacity in three key areas, we aim to create opportunities for our communities to thrive unapologetically in their truths:
- Health and Wellness
- Leadership Development
BSA pushes the language of "safety" because we understand that safety for our general society is a concept that actually oppresses us. We are revising our language, instead emphasizing the importance of bravery, because it requires bravery to confront the systems that deny trans people of color true safety. Our goal in using this framework is to help the TGNC community better understand and rise to the challenges of genuine dialogue for social transformation and justice.

We are excited for this year's line up of presenters! This year's theme is reflected across the board in the class selections, and we hope that you enjoy your time in these sessions as much as we enjoyed previewing them.
We continue to look for ways to compensate our presenters fairly while keeping the conference fee affordable. If you are able to sponsor a presenter, or would like to donate towards that effort, please don't hesitate to visit our Donate page. Thank you for all of your support!
