For anyone within the transgender spectrum, along with their families, friends, and loved ones, here are two conferences I know about where you can celebrate your identity, learn, and meet others in the transgender community:
  • The Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference bills itself as the largest free trans-specific conference in the world. It's taking place Thursday, July 25 through Saturday, July 27, 2019. Here's the website: https://www.mazzonicenter.org/trans-wellness. I attended this conference in 2017 and thought it was fantastic!
  • New York Coming Out International Transgender Conference is taking place Wednesday, October 30 through Sunday, November 3, 2019 in New York City. Here's the website: https://newyorkcomingout.org/. I just learned about this conference for the first time yesterday. It looks interesting, although I see there is a registration fee to attend.
