Chicagoland Latino LGBT activists, leaders, and supporters will convene March 5 at a forum called Sigamos Adelante Chicago. Discussions will focus on the future of the local and national Latino LGBT communities, especially in light of the recent dissolution of LLEGO. LLEGO was the only national non-profit organization devoted to representing Latino LGBT communities and addressing issues relevant to them.
Attendees will also hear reports from the 2004 Sigamos Adelante National Forum in Seattle as well as the 2004 Creating Change Conference in St. Louis. The former included workshops on Latino LGBT individuals and the media while the latter was a skill-building and strategic get-together that had more than 120 workshop sessions and presentations.
Sigamos Adelante Chicago will be held at Lakeview Clinic, 2861 N. Clark, 9:45 a.m.—12:30 p.m. RSVP to Nilsa at ( 312 ) 744-0167 or LatinoLGBT@aol.com .
