A Word About Our Theme
Unpacking non-binary reality…
The world is not left or right, black or white, male or female, us or them, or Star Trek or Star Wars. It is a spectrum, a wide canvas of multiple hues and shades of grey. The foundation of the theme this year is inclusivity and debunking the myths and misinformation that seem rampant at times. We wanted to bridge gaps in knowledge and open dialogues. All we ask is that you listen and try to hear those of differing points of view. You may agree or you may disagree, but if you can’t buy an idea, opt to rent it for a time. Please be respectful and kind. Discussion is cool, but someone’s existence or validity is never up for debate. We are all people.
