"Here's what: when we were little, no one told us about meetups. Or conferences. Or the joys of finding your people. Many of us were busy with covering, passing, coming out -- overcoming adversity and learning how to celebrate our individuality. Well, it's a new decade and making IRL connections is kind of our thing now. Come join 600 new friends and 25 legendary speakers. Whether you're LGBTQ+ or allied, in tech or tech-obsessed, a CEO or a student -- we look forward to meeting you!"
