We are planning a virtual professional event in March 2022.
Our professional symposium provides you with the tools, competencies, and best practices to expand your ability to meet the needs of transgender and gender expansive youth, adults and their loved ones.
It is a full day of comprehensive workshops, judgment-free discussions, and accredited seminars led by nationally-recognized experts and informed by members of the community.
This is designed to offer the opportunity for medical, mental health, education, legal, faith and social justice professionals to learn, question, and expand competencies, and to come away better prepared to assist and fortify individuals (youth as well as adults) and their families.
Please review our Discussion Guidelines.

“The program offerings were really informative and could be a great support for parents and youth who are feeling overwhelmed and nervous about what the future might hold. It was wonderful to hear so many speakers talk about their pride in their gender identity and to share their success stories with the group.”
Jessica R. Rothstein, Psy.D. (she/her)
“I came to the Gender Journey Mid-Atlantic conference as a parent and a therapist. I have a child who recently came out as non-binary/genderfluid. I came to support them and to learn more about how to interact without harm/unintentional judgement, but I also came to become more informed for the potential interactions with clients. It was very eye opening in some respects and confirmed I was doing ok in others. I especially enjoyed the panel with nonbinary /transgender individuals. They were so wonderfully open.”
"There are few opportunities for health care providers to come and learn how to provide affirming gender care for children and adolescents and their families from expert peers and also have a chance to learn from the actual families. It's quite extraordinary.”
“As a grandmother of a child identifying as genderfluid, as well as being a recently retired teacher, I appreciated the excellent resources and videos shared that I can now share with others. Thank you.”
