The IQBC are meant to be a safe and protected space, no matter which sexuality, gender, color oder culture you belong.

After the first International Queer Buddhist Conference (IQBC) on Zoom in 2021 the need to have such gatherings, where lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans, queers, questionings, intersex, asexuals, and other people supporting the community (‚allies‘) can share their ideas, their thoughts, and capabilities in different subjects became very clear.
The conference is not meant to be only a platform for scientific exchange, but also a safe space for open communication, connecting, and learning from each other. Thus, IQBC solicits a wide range of contributions, also in meditation, and especially in artsy expressions, whether it is paintings, photography, film, dance and much more.
It is planned to publish photos and videos of the presentations.
We hope that the IQBC, and especially the 2nd International Queer Buddhist Conference will continue in forming a tradition of regular gatherings to foster exchange in a safe space enriched with humor, engagement, and entertainment as it is already doing with the monthly Conscious Connections of the IQBC.
