Considering this is the last LessConf and what a unique event it is, I’d like to send a special invitation to people not of “privilege” to attend.
Allan and I are certainly irreverent, sometimes crass, but we always try to included everyone. That’s how we’ve always been: You know the person at the office who is a bit weird or shy and no one ever invites to lunch? I always invite that person along for lunch. That’s just the kind of people we are.
LessConf, like most conferences, is filled with white heterosexual men, “people of privilege.” And that’s great, except that it’s also not great. We would like to extend a special invitation to persons who are not white heterosexual men to join us. LessConf should be a place where all people feel free to be themselves; where everyone is loved and accepted and safe. I don’t care who you are or where you fit in, I would like you to fit in at LessConf.
Here’s a coupon for $100 off the price of the ticket. LessConfLovesMeTheWayIAm
Please do come and feel safe to be and express who you are.
