Overview

For families whose children are exploring gender, the journey can feel overwhelming, confusing, and lonely. Here transgender and gender-creative youth, their families, and their loved ones come together for support, learning and community. 


We offer a safe space for children to freely express themselves and find friends. For their loved ones, we offer connection with others in an affirming, open, and receptive environment. This is an opportunity for gender-creative youth and loved ones to further explore their journeys.

Tools & Understanding

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.

An Annual Tradition

 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.
