Gender Spectrum and Gender Odyssey Conferences 2016

Two very important transgender conferences are coming up very soon!

Gender Spectrum in Moraga, Ca July 9-10

The Gender Spectrum conference is primarily for families, their transgender and gender creative children, grades K-12. This conference has been attended by several families in our support group. They have all had rave reviews about their experiences while attending this conference. We encourage anyone to attend with or without their children. Siblings are welcome. Daycare is provided for preschoolers.

 Gender Odyssey in Seattle, Washington August 4-7

Geena Rocero
Maddie Deutsch
The Gender Odyssey conference has an extensive variety of speakers and workshops for transgender adults as well as a separate schedule for transgender and gender creative youth and their families. This years keynote speakers are Geena Rocero, a super model and Maddie Deutsch, Director of Trans Health Services at UCSF
