"The De-Gaying—and Re-Gaying—of Heroes"
The OUTer Film Festival
"The Effects of New Technologies on Literature"
"Queer Exploitation in Film"

I'm sure I won't be able to go all four days, but I definitely want to go Friday for the film festival, if nothing else. ;-)

also: this project is so beautifully inspiring! Opening your heart & home to strangers! I can't wait to have a larger place so I can get involved.

If I had money I'd be there, invited or not. I'm especially curious about the year in review.
Hope you make it, and let us know how it is. :)

Ohhhh CouchSurfing! :) I haven't had the opportunity to couch-surf yet, and I'm still living with my mom (who no doubt would disapprove), so hosting is out of the question. But I'm super inspired by it, too. A friend of mine recently spent a few weeks in Europe and used that site to connect with a few people who ended up letting her stay with them. I haven't talked much with her, but I guess it was a good experience... I didn't hear any horror stories, anyway! :)

If you're interested in these sorts of conferences you may want to look into the Southern Comfort Conference. It's always held in Atlanta, although you'll have to wait til next year, it ended about a month or so ago.
