To celebrate LGBT history month throughout October, many organizations are hosting events and engagements for the community and allies. For ten days starting Oct. 7, My2024, an online forum, game, national conversation and party, will ask LGBT people across the county how their lives and communities could change by the year 2024.
My2024 was developed to help imagine new possibilities for the future of the LGBT movement; much can happen in ten years. Participants could win an award from one of the LGBT celebrity judges and can enjoy hanging out with people who are interested in the same things. Every story shared helps build the My2024 Declaration, a call-to-action for the next decade of the LGBT movement.
The My2024 Declaration will look at four topics: what freedoms will the LGBT community have, what causes will require action, predictions on how the world will look in ten years and what is needed today that will turn out a future that the LGBT community wants. The Declaration will be updated every hour on Oct. 7-8.
Online platforms are powerful tools for collaboration and breaking through limits of thinking. The more voices that are a part of this project, the more perspectives will be represented.
My2024 is a collaboration between the Arcus Foundation and the Institute for the Future and partners with GLAAD, The Trevor Project and The Transgender Law Center, as well as BiNet USA, GLSEN, KICK, KGLRC, NCLR, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Center for Artistic Revolution, Campus Pride, Anti-Violence Project, The Center, ALSO, PFLAG and many more.
