The Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth was created in 2005 with the purpose of creating a safe space for LGBTQ youth in the Midwest to gather, show their pride, and learn about ways to advocate in their communities. Through the years, the Governor’s Conference has grown to be the largest LGBTQ youth conference in the nation.
As an organization, we hold fundraisers throughout the year to offset the enormous cost of hosting such a large-scale event. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Iowa Safe Schools has seen a drastic increase in the need for supportive and affirming spaces for LGBTQ youth. The organization has maintained that our funding priority will always be to provide supports and resources to students.
Over 75% of students who attend the conference do so on a full or partial scholarship. Iowa Safe Schools has never turned a student away from attending the conference, as it is a life-saving event for so many attendees.
