We were thinking big and living large in Texas last week at Creating Change. Thank you, Dallas, and the more than 2,000 folks who turned out to create change (and the many others who were unable to attend but followed our tweets and conference blog)! Mark your calendar now for the 23rd National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change in Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. 2–6, 2011.
Same-sex couples in the U.S. have lost more than $2 billion in Social Security benefits in the past decade. We're going to end this discrimination and in Dallas we announced how.

I can't believe this is my first Creating Change. It was the best way to start 2010! I had the honor of performing at the youth Mas-Queer-Ade Ball, which was full of amazing spirit and inspiration. Hundreds of queer youth cheered on the youth performers, who were the real stars of the show and brought the energy of the conference to a whole new level!

Creating Change was a transformative experience for me and for Unid@s, the National Latina/o LGBT Human Rights Organization. We got the skills, strategies and connections needed to move our work forward, and we also took the opportunity to meet as a board and plan for the year ahead. We're now empowered and ready to give voice to our Latina/o LGBT movement and Creating Change was a big part of that.
