Washington University in St. Louis will host the third annual Transgender Spectrum Conference Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th, 2016.  Initiated by the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2014, the conference brings together a wide range of people interested in celebrating the lives of transgender people in the St. Louis area and beyond.  Our goal is to create dialog, to educate ourselves and our community, and to improve the lives of all gender variant people.

The conference will include a variety of programming (papers, panels, workshops) for everyone—from those learning about transgender issues for the first time to seasoned scholars and activists. This year’s conference theme is Education, Liberation, and Healing.

Supervised activities for children/youth will be scheduled on Saturday.   Children must be registered for the conference. To register, follow the registration link above or click here.  Children’s programming is open to all kids who are old enough to participate in group activities.

Continuing Education Credit is available for Medical and Social Service Professionals.  CME is provided by the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Continuing Medical Education.  CE is provided by the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis.
