FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Conference Addresses Needs of Transgender, Non-Binary, Genderqueer, Non-Conforming, and Expansive Southerners October 5 – 6, 2018
Houston, TX, October 5-6 - SAVE THE DATE! Gender Infinity is excited to announce our 8th annual conference which will take place on Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the University of Houston. This conference offers education, support, and resources for and by the transgender community. The event has workshops for everyone: trans communities of all ages, their families, significant others, medical and mental health professionals, and advocates.
Given high rates of discrimination, health inequities, and gaps in supportive services available to trans communities and their families, this conference provides much needed training and information to facilitate gender affirmative approaches to care informed by the latest research. Ranging from beginner to advanced levels, workshops are designed to meet participants where they are in their knowledge, skill, and personal gender journey.
The program includes trans led discussions, local and national expert presentations, parent panel discussions, collaborative case consultation, and youth programming for teens, tweens, and kids. Continuing education is available for physicians, psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists.
The two-day event is an opportunity for trans communities of all ages to unite, build relationships across generations, and collaborate with providers. This conference’s inclusion of all ages, including gender diverse kids, makes it unique to this region of the United States.
Gender Infinity is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that creates affirming spaces for families, learners, advocates, and providers to advance relationships, knowledge, and resources that empower gender diverse individuals. In their journey together they promote justice, equity, and hope in the celebration of infinite gender possibilities.
