The purpose of this meeting, "Building an Inclusive Astronomy Community: An LGBTQIA+ Meeting", is to provide a platform for LGBTQIA+ astronomers to come together, share their experiences and perspectives, and discuss ways in which the astronomical community can become more inclusive. This meeting is also aimed at educating the wider astronomical community about the challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ astronomers, and promoting awareness and understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community within the field.
