2021 LGBTQ+ Town Hall: Rural Queerness
February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Vermont has one of the highest percentages of LGBTQ+ populations in the nation, with an estimated 30,000 Vermonters aged 13 and over self-identifying as LGBTQˆ. But Vermont looks a lot different than many other progressive states in the sense that we are mostly rural. What draws LGBTQ+ people to our state, and what sustains them? How does one find community, connection, and culture?
Join us on Thursday, February 4th for a statewide conversation about rural queerness. In this Town Hall, we will have space for you to discuss how to find rural queer joy, what changes or organizing is happening within your community, and what is impacting you.
Justin Marsh (Director of Development & Communications, Pride Center of Vermont) and Eva Westheimer (Programs & Volunteer Coordinator, Out in the Open) facilitate.

ABOUT THE 2021 LGBTQ+ TOWN HALL SERIES:
The LGBTQIA+ Alliance of Vermont is hosting a series of Statewide Town Halls throughout Winter 2021 to hold space for our LGBTQIA+ community members to share what is important to them, explore ways folks are building in their own communities, and create or strengthen connections.
The LGBTQIA Alliance of Vermont is a loose coalition of organizations that support our queer and trans community members across the state. The organizations that collaborated to bring this series together include Out in the Open, Outright Vermont, Pride Center of Vermont, and Rainbow Umbrella of Central Vermont, with additional support from Queer Connect – Bennington.
