General Call for Workshop Proposals

The Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference hosts over 175 workshops each year. The success of the event is dependent upon the experience and expertise that comes from the community, so the planning committee is now soliciting workshop proposals from the community that explore many aspects of Transgender,Transsexual, Non-binary, Genderqueer, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex people’s experiences. We favor constructive workshops that work towards education, empowerment, and improving conditions.
