This is all so new! Trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming 101. Presenter CB
This facilitated conversational workshop is designed for the needs of people who are just starting out thinking about gender. Perhaps your child has disclosed to you, perhaps you want to make your organization more welcoming, perhaps you’re just curious. This workshop will be a comfortable place to learn, express curiosity, and grow. Cis gender people will have an appropriate, non-intrusive way to ask questions.

Being a Trans Ally, Presenter: Tyler Sliker
The word “ally” has been commonplace in the LGBTQ+ and Transgender/gender non-binary community for some time now. But what does it really mean? This workshop aims to explore and define allyship, with a focus on the active & activist nature of being an ally. There will also be discussion & exploration of the intersectionality of allyship. A theme of this workshop will be acknowledging the importance of & incorporating racial justice, anti-violence against women, and other justice movements into being a trans ally.

Gender Wellness Care
The presentation offers an insiders perspective into transgender healthcare by reviewing basic concepts regarding gender identity, sex assigned at birth, gender expression, and sexual orientation. Furthermore the presentation covers the different forms of transition including: social, medical and surgical, including insurance coverage in New York State. This presentation is right for anyone who wants to better understand transgender healthcare and the ways they can best support transgender or gender non-conforming people.

On Faith and the Criminalization of the Black Trans Body, Presenter: J Mase III

Preemptive Radical Hospitality, Presenter: CB
This workshop is for people who want to do the work of creating a space (physical, emotional) that is prepared and welcoming for transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming people. The more competent a group or organization is in holding affirming space for trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming people, the closer we move to a world of justice and equity.
Preemptive radical hospitality is part of a movement toward justice.

Creating a Welcoming Environment for Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Children, Presenter: Tobias Vargrim -
Drawing on over a decade in the field of early education and their own experience as a trans child (and, eventually, adult) Tobias will explore what it means to welcome children of all genders and presentations, as well as how to gently model that inclusion for others. This workshop is based in the classroom, but the strategies are adaptable to many environments. Presentation followed by Q&A.

“Loving the Hell out of the World” a De-escalation Workshop, Presenter: Rev. Sunshine Wolf
In the past year at least, we have witnessed an increase in behavior that is neither kind nor caring. How do we deescalate situations that are harmful? This workshop will cover skills for understanding and responding to hatred, rudeness, and violence.

A survey of the legal history and current state of the law regarding transgender persons with regard to issues like insurance coverage, name changes and civil rights.
