Our annual summit is an incredible opportunity for LGBTQ and allied students from across Oklahoma to come together, network, share best practices and learn from experts in the field of advocacy, civil rights, law, and LGBTQ+ health. This year's summit is hosted by Rose State College with the support of the RSC Spectrum Alliance.

Anna Facci, Oklahoma Organizer for Planned Parenthood Great Plains and PP Great Plains Votes, will be our 2019 Keynote Speaker.
