MIR25 will be held November 5-7, 2021 in Chicago. 
Further information regarding MIR25 will be released mid-summer 2021. 
We thank you for your patience as we assess the various factors that will play into producing this year's event.

MIR24 - RubberLab, our first global digital experience, has now come to an end.  But what a huge success it was.  Thank you to all of our content creators. attendees, presenters, moderators, hosts, volunteers and staff who made this year's event possible.

While we felt it was important that MIR24 be free of charge for our attendees, that does not mean that it was without costs for the organization. There were online streaming fees, audio and visual rentals to stream the contest, venue fees, food and beverage for our volunteer  staff, ASL interpreter fees, and much more. And this does not even begin to cover the annual, ongoing operating expenses of an organization like ours.

If you'd like to make a donation to help cover the expenses of producing and streaming the event to the entire world, you can make a donation to support MIR24
You can also buy some MIR24 Merchandise in our Red Bubble store.
We're also accepting donations to the Sly Hands Travel Fund to help Adalberto complete his extended title year.
And finally we'd like to encourage you to support Center on Halsted, which as been supporting MIR and the LGBTQ community of Chicagoland throughout this pandemic.
