The TRANSLIFE Community Conference brings together transgender/gender-expansive individuals from the North Bay counties to increase connections, share information, and expand individual self-advocacy and knowledge.
Each year, representatives from multiple organizations are in attendance to share information on the social, legal, economic, and health services available to the community, and to provide hands-on resources that can be put to use right away. Additionally, the conference provides some fun social and networking opportunities geared specifically to the transgender/gender-expansive community!
We are so excited to be back in-person and can’t wait to welcome you to the 2023 TRANSLIFE Community Conference on Saturday, April 29th!
Join us for a day of workshops, speakers, resources, and community building.
Who Should Attend
The TRANSLIFE Community conference is an inclusive space for anyone on the transgender/gender-expansive spectrum. This includes individuals who identify as transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, genderfluid, two-spirit, agender, or questioning. We welcome you wherever you are in your journey!
This conference is specifically geared to the transgender/gender-expansive community and is not an allies event. Participants are welcome to bring a partner, child, family member, or friend for support. Support guests are not able to attend every workshop, as some are transgender/gender-expansive only spaces, but there will be an alternate workshop open to for them in every time slot.
There will be no services for professionals or non-support allies at this conference. Professionals and allies not directly connected to a participant are advised to attend the Professional Symposium.
