The third annual Time to Thrive conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, American Counseling Association and National Education Association. The conference provides opportunities for educators and other professionals who work with LGBT youth. You can read my story about the conference here.

The evening included speeches by conference organizer Vincent Pompei, transgender teen and author Jazz Jennings and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro.

Check out my story Friday on the national and local barriers facing LGBT people and an interview with Secretary Castro.
