About TransCon:

Anti-trans violence, rhetoric, and legislation is on the rise in the United States. As of May 2024, at least 9 transgender lives have already been lost to anti-trans violence in the US. Transgender individuals make up just 1.6% of the adult population, yet are the subject of almost 600 pieces of legislation restricting their rights introduced in 2023 alone. Transgender individuals face huge disparities and discrimination in all areas of society including: Healthcare, Education, Employment, & Houselessness.

TransCon seeks to address these disparities by:

  • Educating transgender/nonbinary individuals as well as allies
  • Facilitating a brave & accessible space for transgender/nonbinary individuals to convene, learn, and build community
  • Connecting transgender/nonbinary individuals to direct services
TransCon 2024 will center around the following themes: 
  • Whole Person Wellness
  • Celebrating Queer Community
  • Engaging in Our Democracy
Workshop and speaker stipends will be in the range of $250 - $750, dependent upon services offered.
This will be a multi-lingual and accessible event, so workshops/services in Spanish, Haitian Kreyol, Portuguese, ASL and others strongly encouraged.

"Breathing While Black & Trans"
