about-new.png

The Lesbians Who Tech + Allies San Francisco Summit is the largest LGBTQ professional event in the world. We focus on increasing the visibility of LGBTQ women, trans and gender nonconforming individuals, LGBTQ people of color, and demographics that are underrepresented in the tech sector and LGBTQ spaces. We’ve been called, “The best tech conference, ever, ” and, “The most diverse tech conference they’ve ever been to,” and our favorite, “It’s like TED, but with cooler people.”

We are a tech conference first. A tech conference where the speakers happen to be 80% queer women, 50% women of color, 25% black & latinx and 15% transgender and gender non-conforming. We cover topics from top technical trends, how technology will shape our future, career growth, so our community can grow and thrive. You can view our past Summit agenda below as well as use our letter below to help convince your boss.

A collaboration between Rhodessa Jones with Women's HIV Program UCSF &

OCTOBER 25 – NOVEMBER 4, 2018

When Did Your Hands Become a Weapon? heralds the beginning of Cultural Odyssey’s 40th Anniversary Season. Developed far before the #MeToo movement, When Did Your Hands Become a Weapon? is a prescient call to action in perfect alignment with the issues surrounding the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment of women. This project is a major departure from previous theatrical spectacles focusing on these issues, heralding a new model of care that allows women to heal from past abuse and prevent further trauma.

CHURCH, PLAY BY YOUNG JEAN LEE

CHURCH

BY YOUNG JEAN LEE
DIRECTED BY MINA MORITA
SEP 13–OCT 6 · AT POTRERO STAGE · DIRECTIONS

What does it mean to lose, gain and question faith? In CHURCH, Young Jean Lee transforms her lifelong struggle with Christianity into an exuberant church service. A traveling group of earnest reverends testify through narrative, song, and dance, testing the expectations of religious and non-religious alike. In its New York City premiere, Time Out New York described CHURCH as “no cheap satire of piety. Instead, it is an earnestly warped attempt to explore what gives religion its insidious appeal.”
