We are an LGBTQ youth advocacy conference at Syracuse University. Student-run, we had our first event last spring (3/24/12) and are so excited to bring you Life Gets Better Together 2013 next year!

Join us for a day of workshops, panels, and a cappella & learn how YOU can stop LGBTQ bullying!

Our mission is to facilitate the creation of a more accepting world for LGBTQQIAA youth through conversation, education, and celebration.
The ‘Life Gets Better Together’ conference, as it is known today, was created and co-chaired by Syracuse University students Liam Fitzpatrick and Deanna Payson. Their supportive and highly-motivated team is made up of students, faculty, and local supporters of the LGBT youth advocacy cause.

Thanks to the support of the Syracuse University Co-Curricular fund, the Syracuse University LGBT Resource Center, LGBT Studies Program, and Political Science department, ‘Life Gets Better Together’ came to fruition March 24th, 2012 in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
