The BECAUSE Conference is the annual conference of the Bisexual Organizing Project, dedicated to building an empowered bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and unlabelled (bi*) community in the United States. Allies are enthusiastically invited to participate in this fantastic experience! BECAUSE, which stands for "Bisexual Empowerment Conference, A Uniting Supportive Experience," is welcoming and inclusive of all people, including but not limited to people of all genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, sexes, relationship orientations, races, ethnicities, national origins, abilities, religions, sizes, political affiliations, and others. We embrace the many intersectionalities in the bi* community, and encourage people of all backgrounds and experiences to join us for this eventful weekend.

BECAUSE attracts a variety of participants, including students, academics, researchers, professionals, and community leaders from throughout the nation to attend educational workshops, network, and enjoy building a more welcoming LGBTQIA community.
