In 2015, the 1st Annual Upper Midwest Queer & Trans Indigenous People & People of Color (QTIPOC) Conference brought in more than 300 people from all over the Midwest. Larger numbers are expected for this upcoming conference that will be held on the Unversity of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in 2018. This conference cultivates knowledge exchange, best practices, and education through the arts, discussions, workshops, and keynote speakers in order to inspire, equip, and connect QTIPOC to collaborate and bring innovation and sustainability to Upper Midwest communities where they work, live, and learn.
