Queer Me Out at W Scottsdale

June 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


W Scottsdale will host Queer Me Out, a global speaker series held at W Hotels Worldwide featuring live Q&A panels with influential members of the LGBT community, on Thursday, June 13 at 6:30pm.

Each event features passionate panel discussions that dive into hot-button issues as well as the work and play off experts and icons.

The W Scottsdale Queer Me Out panel will highlight the topic of “Breaking Barriers in Business; LGBTQ+ in the Workplace.” The event, which coincides with Scottsdale LGBTQ Pride Month, will kick off at 6:30PM and is open to the LGBT community and allies. Admission is free, but RSVPs are required.

Through the Queer Me Out speaker series on June 13, W Scottsdale will lift up leaders in the LGBTQ community who otherwise might not have a platform to deliver their message and have their voices heard. The panelists and moderators are hand-selected from diverse industries, each representing the core values and passion pillars defining W Hotels: design, art, music and philanthropy.

Queer Me Out will feature a Q&A panel comprised of Jericho Galindo, Mister Phoenix Pride; Eva Steele, Phoenix Pride Program Manager; and NOH8 Campaign co-founders Jeff Parshley and Adam Bouska. The panel will be moderated by Chad Brittian, entrepreneur and CEO of NVS Design, Inc.

Panelists will share personal stories, insight and anecdotes to inspire, educate and encourage audience attendees. Guests at the event will also be able to present questions to the panel during an open Q&A. Once the panel is concluded, the event will shift into the W Scottsdale Living Room for a cocktail party, live music and an exclusive NOH8 photoshoot, where attendees can come together to snap photos in solidarity and support of equal rights.

6:30PM – 7:00PM: Doors Open + Cocktail Hour. Enjoy an open bar with complimentary beer, wine and light passed appetizers before the panel gets underway.
