In spite of the remnants of the pandemic, the 2020 Worldwide LGBTIQ+ Network Conference will proceed virtually as arrangedcoordinators reconfirmed today.

Founded in 2018 by the Thami Dish Foundation, the second annual Global LGBTIQ+ Network to form a platform is to gather LGBTIQ+ individuals from over the world, engaged in conversations leading to change and that empower and move thinking.
This is done through hosting this bi-annual conference with a different set of speakers, thought pioneers and activists who share the values of a comprehensive different world.
 Due to the current instability around the pandemic, 90% of the conference will happen virtually with a small bunch of delegates partaking in person from the venue. Once again, the conference will be broadcast from the iconic and majestic Constitution Hill in Braamfontein, Johannesburg from
20-22 October 2020.
 ‘The second ideation of the Global LGBTIQ+ Network Conference will be hosted this year    and under the main theme ‘inclusion and cohesion’ and the sub-theme ‘unifying LGBTIQ+ voices. And once again we are super excited to have partnered with Constitution Hill for the momentous conference when all activities virtual or otherwise will be taking place.’ stated founder Thami Dish.
The conference will be held amid South Africa’s PRIDE month and is in the soul of PRIDE that the Global LGBTIQ+ Network seeks to empower individuals of the LGBTIQ+ community through certifying discussioninformation sharing and knowledge gathering.
To commemorate Pride Month in South Africa, we raised the Pride flag on Constitution Hill where it will high for the entire month of October. While Pride month  is most definitely a celebration, our Pride2020 campaign has education and awareness at its core. We are also using all our digital platforms to raise awareness and improve education on the LGBTQ+ community & Pride movement and the issues and injustice that still remain, in the hope of improving the attitudes of society and to encourage inclusiveness. “ added Constitution Hill CEO Dawn Robertson.
