Workshops Specifically for Partners
Spouses & Significant Others Are Welcome, Too!
Spouses and Significant Others are not only invited to attend the Keystone Conference, but play an integral part in the success of the conference! Several of our seminars and workshops are specifically designed to help develop your relationship into one that is open, honest and healthy with your transgender partner. We make every effort to provide a safe place to share your feelings, ask those tough questions and discover that you are not alone.
We realize and acknowledge the difficulties in coping with the issues of a transgender loved one. We hope to not only help you understand your partner better, but also just as important, to help them to understand and respect your concerns and feelings.
Attending your first transgender conference as a Spouse or SO can be quite unnerving. You may feel awkward and overwhelmed, but please do not shy away and slink back to your room. We want to hear your thoughts and questions. There is no doubt you will see and hear stories of wrecked lives and relationships, but there are positive stories, too. And our goal is to learn and relay those positive stories in hopes of building a better relationship for you. We encourage you to participate in as many of the seminars and workshops as you can.
We ask you to join us each day in the 'Significant Other Sanctuary', a safe space reserved only for the partners of Transgender individuals. For more information, or to contact our Spouse/Significant Other program directors, please email them. They can provide you with additional information as well as online resources to meet others like yourself.
Finally, check back later as we begin to firm up our schedule for workshops and activities that are of particular interest to you.
