For families whose children are exploring gender, the journey can feel overwhelming, confusing, and lonely. Here the families of transgender and gender expansive youth come together for support, learning , and community.
We offer a safe space for parents and caregivers to connect with others in an affirming, open, and receptive environment.
This year's mini Family Day Parent/Caregiver Programming will include a series of presentations and panel discussions with local clinicians, a variety of transgender and non binary professionals, presenters, and family members just like you.
* This session is for parents/caregivers of gender expansive children only.
**This session is for Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) and parents/caregivers of gender expansive children of color only.
9:00am - 1:00pm - Parent and Caregiver Sessions
1:30pm - 2:30pm - Child, Youth & Young Adult Programming
The gender conference provided me with tools and understanding to help support not only my child but my entire family.
There was always time for questions and answers for the experts as well as connecting with other families.
My child was able to meet other children and not feel so alone in his journey. It just felt amazing to be in a space with others that understood our path.
My family attended our first Gender Journey conference in 2016 and now we have made it an annual tradition. The breakout sessions are extremely informative, timely and impactful. I really appreciate hearing from the medical and mental health professionals and learning from other parents.
Our kids have a blast at the Friday night Meet and Greet, Kids Camp and After Party on Saturday night. The best part of the conference weekend is being with other families who are on similar journeys. We always look forward to seeing old friends and of course, making new ones.
