Who can attend?


The Contemporary Relationships Conference is open to the LGBTQ public (both singles interested in dating, and those in a relationship) as well as allies, community leaders, and mental health professionals (continuing education credits available). Many LGBTQ singles are seeking a healthy relationship while those already in one are pursuing deeper connections. A growing number of LGBTQ people are choosing to parent children. Consequently, the need for supportive dialogue about relationship-building within the LGBTQ community has never been greater. Drawing from both research and experience, our speakers will offer simple yet powerful insights into how great LGBTQ relationships work. Join our annual effort to generate useful ideas!




When and where is the Contemporary Relationships Conference 2020?


Due to current concerns about the coronavirus, the conference Program Committee and the original venue space at the University of Texas have decided to make this year's conference an online experience you can enjoy from the comforts of your own home. Once you register, and before the conference dates, you'll receive a schedule and a link to the online workshops you can choose to join. Get comfortable, pour yourself something to drink, and let's start learning!




Must I disclose personal information during discussions?


No. The conference is not therapy and no one in attendance will be required to share personal or private information about their dating and relationship experiences. The roundtable discussions are an opportunity to exchange ideas, insights, and best practices. Each participant retains the right to get involved in the conversation to the extent that they are comfortable doing so. Some participants might share thoughts or ask questions, while others may prefer to listen quietly without saying much. Both levels of participation are welcome.





Integrating cutting edge science and practical experience to explore dating, relationships, and parenting within the LGBTQ community. Open to the LGBTQ public (singles and those in a relationship) as well as allies, community leaders, and mental health professionals (CE credits available).
