Conferences

Gender Odyssey (FTM) — Seattle, Washington

Gender Odyssey’s conference programming is focused on the needs and interests of transgender and gender non-conforming people from across North America and around the world. Gender Odyssey is a place where we can gather together, learn from one another, and celebrate our growing communities. By creating a place where we can share our collective experience, Gender Odyssey’s primary objective is to offer tools to navigate obstacles and provide pathways to individual and community empowerment.

Trans-Health Conference

The mission of the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference (PTHC) is to educate and empower trans* individuals on issues of health and well-being; educate and inform allies and health service providers; and facilitate networking, community-building, and systemic change. We strive to create an accessible and respectful environment that is inclusive of diverse gender-identities and expressions as well as inclusive of diverse opinions and ideas.

Forge Forward (FTM) — Wisconsin

FORGE was founded in 1994 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to provide peer support primarily to those on the female-to-male (FTM) gender spectrum and local Significant Others, Friends, Family, and Allies (SOFFAs). Over the years, our scope has grown to include everyone in the transgender community (which we define as including SOFFAs), and many of our programs have become national. You’ll find information about the training and technical assistance we provide, plus descriptions of our major current projects.
