About the event

Join Big Break Foundation and Equality Florida for a crucial discussion on the far-reaching impact of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation on our communities and professionals within the Location-Based Experience industry, both in Florida and nationwide. 

Our panel of LGBTQ+ advocates and community leaders, including Carlos Guillermo Smith, Gina Duncan, Mayor Buddy Dyer, and Representative Anna V. Eskamani will be shedding light on the effects of these laws and policies, and how our industry can continue to create safe and welcoming spaces for employees and guests. Together, we'll explore how we can advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and protections, practice conscious allyship, and create a more equitable future for all.

Don't miss this opportunity to engage in an informed and impactful conversation.

Hosted by John Paul Geurts and Melissa (Ruminot) Oviedo.
