Greta Speaking in Denver This Weekend!

Hi, all! I’m speaking in Denver this weekend, at the Atheist Alliance of America “Ascent of Atheism” conference! It promises to be a humdinger — other speakers include PZ Myers, Taslima Nasrin, Dan Barker, Jamila Bey, Jessica Ahlquist, Hemant Mehta, Tony Pinn, Eugenie Scott, Matt Dillahunty, AronRa, Guillermo Paz-y-Miño C., Mikey Weinstein, Victor Stenger, Avelina Espinosa, The Godless Bitches, and more.

My own talk is on “What the GLTB Movement Teaches the Atheist Movement.” Plus I’ll be doing a live podcast interview with the Godless Bitches! Here’s the details.

CITY: Denver, CO
DATE: Friday Aug. 31 – Saturday Sept. 3
TIME: All day conference
LOCATION: Grand Hyatt Hotel, Denver, CO

TOPIC OF MY TALK: What the GLTB Movement Teaches the Atheist Movement
SUMMARY: The atheist movement is already modeling itself on the LGBT movement in many ways — most obviously with its focus on coming out of the closet. What else can the atheist movement learn from the LGBT movement… both from its successes and its failures?
PLUS: I’ll be doing a live podcast interview with the Godless Bitches!
ALSO PLUS: Child care will be provided for all children, with Camp Quest available for kids over 6.
ALSO ALSO PLUS: On the Monday after the conference proper, there’ll be a mountain picnic and hike, with both adult and kid’s levels of hiking. Transportation provided.
COST: $25 – $325. Student rates available. See website for details. Open to the public.

The Ascent of Atheism conference has a cool promo video, too:

Looks like a great time. If you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!

    I hope this “GLTB” is not more divisiveness. :)
