The Original LGBT Expo 2018
Founded in 1993, the Original LGBT Expo is the largest and longest-running LGBT convention in the world celebrating diversity in business, education, politics, the arts, health, technology, media, travel, and non-profit sectors.
Being held September 29 & 30, 2018 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, the event features over 200 exhibiting companies, many of which are LGBT owned and operated, an engaging seminar series, live entertainment stage, and much more! The 100,000+ square foot show floor also spotlights specific areas dedicated to some of the most popular industries catering to the LGBT community including travel, weddings, small business, non-profit and family planning.
Created for attendees of all ages and backgrounds, this once-a-year event should not be missed! 2018 will see a greater emphasis on Entertainment, Education, and Appreciation for the entire history of the LGBT Community.
In an effort to be fully inclusive, and for the first time in 24 years, the Original LGBT Expo is 100% FREE to all attendees! We firmly believe that the event should be accessible to members of the Community as well as to all those who wish to support and learn about the Community. Register for your Free Ticket.
In addition, this will be the first year the event is conveniently co-located with RuPaul’s DragCon, who is making their NYC debut! DragCon, despite being only three years old, has quickly become a must-attend event for both the Drag and LGBT communities. We are excited to be collaborating with an event that loves and supports the LGBT Community just as much as we do!
We’d like to thank Venture Filmworks for their outstanding work on our video.
