HOT Con is the first college conference to focus on the history, present conditions, and future visualizations of LGBTQ+ people in Indiana. Students, faculty, staff, and community members come together from across the state to participate in the fabulous workshops, poster presentations, keynote, and Open Mic. The materials presented range from activism, history, student life, and professional development to representation, media, and art. It is our chance to learn from each other, to queer the history of our state, and to make a mark in our archives. Our existence is resistance.
