Vermont Rural Pride Convening

Please join Green Mountain Crossroads and The National Center for Lesbian Rights as we host the next Rural Pride event at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont on Friday, April 27. Register for this free event here:

These Rural Pride gatherings are about recognizing that the myth of the affluent urban cis gay is not even close to representing the full spectrum of our community and where we live. Come explore experiences and challenges of being LGBTQ in rural America. Full session descriptions and speaker bios to come! This is a free and open event.

General sessions will focus on the state of LGBTQ rights under the Trump Administration, the challenges still facing LGBTQ families post-marriage equality, poverty and economic justice in the LGBTQ community, and protecting and improving our access to health care. Breakout sessions will focus on the needs of rural LGBTQ seniors and youth, LGBTQ people in agriculture, and incarceration and its alternatives.

We hope you can join us! Register now (it’s free!) at and mark April 27th on your calendar!

See you in Plainfield!
