Photos: Time to Thrive Kicks Off in Nevada

Last night, HRC Foundation's conference promoting safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth kicked off in Las Vegas.

The conference will engage a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff at places like Boys and Girls Clubs and YMCAs. Time to THRIVE provides a “one-stop-shop” opportunity for these professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices, and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field.

Check out photos from the last night's star-studded show and stay tuned to #timetoTHRIVE on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for more updates.

And don't forget to tune in to watch LIVE as Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, delivers special remarks at Time to THRIVE on Sunday.  Her remarks are scheduled to begin at 11:40 a.m. Pacific Time. You can view the event at http://www.ustream.tv/HumanRightsCampaign.
