PART 1 -- CONTACT INFORMATION

(Please note that the QD conference organizers use email as our primary mode of communication. Therefore, please give us your most reliable, frequently-checked email address.)

PART 2 -- CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

The registration fee includes the two-day conference, Sunday and Monday lunches, and Sunday evening reception.

Please note: We have a commitment to making this financially accessible and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. But we also need to raise money to offset the costs of the conference. If you need a scholarship, please pre-register as early as possible and contribute what you can. For others, registering and paying early helps us by providing funds in advance and helps us plan.

If you need financial assistance with housing or travel please fill out the Scholarship form.

PART 8 -- CONTRIBUTIONS AND SUPPORT

RESOURCES:
We are collecting resources useful to Disabled and Deaf Queers. If you know of ANY organizations, listserves, websites, articles, books, etc., please list them and include them with your registration form. After the conference, we will create a RESOURCE GUIDE FOR DISABLED AND DEAF QUEERS and make it available to you.

DONATIONS:
One of our primary goals is to make this conference accessible to low-income people. We need additional funding in order to provide registration, travel, and housing scholarships to low-income attendees. In order to have a fully-accessible conference, we must also raise funds for interpreters and other accommodations and supports. Therefore, we are asking for donations.
