2017 Gender Spectrum Events

Gender Spectrum will host the following events this summer:

Gender Spectrum Professionals’ Symposium – Friday, July 21 – California State University, East Bay in Hayward, CA
Gender Spectrum Conference – Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 – Saint Mary’s College of California in Moraga, CA

This year’s theme for the Conference and Professionals’ Symposium is “Seen, Safe and Supported”. We chose this because despite the increased attention regarding gender diversity, the real, lived experience of transgender, non-binary and otherwise gender-expansive children and youth’s lives can get lost. This weekend is a place to come together, to be seen, to learn, to share our experiences and to gain support from one another.

The Conference is a place where transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive young people and their families can come together to learn, be supported, and connect with others in a safe and reassuring environment. The Symposium provides professionals with the latest information and tools needed to further help the young people we support feel seen and safe in all environments.

Online registration for the 2017 events will open in February. Stay tuned for future event updates by signing up for emails from Gender Spectrum.
