Special Announcement: Conference for Families w/ Gender Variant Kids

Hey Everyone,

This is a special PSA to let everyone know that the Gender Spectrum Family Conference is a very important, special conference developed for families of gender variant children and teens (including the kids themselves). It will be held September 3-6th in the SF Bay Area this year.

I attended last year, and was very moved — especially by the strength and commitment of the parents to learn about and support their children. This year I’ll be assisting with the kids camp. (We have some really fun stuff planned.)

The conference is held by the same org that put out The Transgender Child: A Handbook for Families and Professionals. They’re also the conference that was featured on NPR (This American Life) last year — you know, the bring-you-to-tears story of two trans young girls that we ran on our site.

So if you or someone you know belongs at this conference (trans and genderqueer teens — this is for you and your parents!), please do the registration thing now. Like, now now. Right now.

Please. This conference is life-changing.
