About LAQC

The Louisiana Queer Conference (LAQC) , which started in 2011, provides leadership development, networking opportunities, and social support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) college students and their allies in Louisiana. The conference provides an annual venue for individuals to discuss ideas and collaborate on projects, while building a statewide network to advance the LGBTQ movement.

Keynote Speaker: Pidgeon Pagonis

Pidgeon Pagonis

Pidgeon Pagonis has slowly, oftentimes not so quietly risen to visibility in Chicago as not only an activist on behalf of intersex people, but also as a fighter for the recognition of marginalized others in general, regardless of race, sex or gender identity, class or creed. Whether advancing youth advocacy with interACT, producing informational videos that go viral on Buzzfeed, writing for Everyday Feminism, appearing on the cover of National Geographic “Gender Revolution” special issue or being honored as a LGBT Champion of Change in 2015 by the Obama White House, Pidgeon has staked out a place at the fore of debates on intersexuality and otherness.

Learn more about Pidgeon and their work.

After Party

Louisiana Queer Conference hosts a Queer After Party each year, as many LGBTQ+ youth do not get to fully enjoy or even attend prom in high school. Queer After Party welcomes all gender identities and sexual orientations, meaning that you can bring whoever and dress however you like!
