Explore LGBTQIA+ Programming for SXSW EDU 2024

SXSW EDU was created on the foundation of inclusive education, creating spaces for diverse perspectives, and embracing the experiences of all communities. This March, we are extremely excited to have a variety of programming that will foster important conversations within the LGBTQIA+ community. With a focus on empowering voices often marginalized in education spaces, SXSW EDU welcomes all to participate in a space where we can celebrate all gender identities and sexual orientations, while providing a platform for meaningful discussion.

Queer leaders and advocates will take the SXSW EDU stage to share their unique experiences, innovative solutions, and offer one-on-one mentorships. Explore LGBTQIA+ programming for SXSW EDU 2024 and save the sessions to your schedule:
