Jensen
For those of you that are attending the Keystone Conference for the first time or feel you need a little moral support, join Jenny Jensen as she hosts 'Tea Time with Jenny.' It’s an informal gathering of first timers, newcomers and anxious attendees in a comfortable and discreet setting. It’s an opportunity for those that are unsure of themselves and want to start off their Keystone experience on a good footing, learn a little more about the conference and how it can help them.

We can also provide you with a Big Sister or Big Brother to help you get through the apprehension, worry and nervousness you might be feeling attending the Conference. For more information and to sign up for 'Tea Time with Jenny' contact Jenny at HelpingHand@Keystone-Conference.org to start your Keystone Conference off on a positive and enjoyable note.

'Tea Time with Jenny' starts each morning at 10 am in the Dog and Pony Lounge.
2:00P Movie Screening "Thy Will Be Done - A Transexual Woman's Journey through Family & Faith", a film by Alice Bouvrie Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Hemlock
Thy Will Be Done follows Male-to-Female Transsexual Sara Herwig in her journey to ordination in the Presbyterian Church. The Church’s conservative groups do not recognize Sara as female and challenge her fitness and eligibility to be a pastor. In addition, it is crucial to Sara’s success that she has support from friends and family. The documentary explores the way in which alternative lifestyles and permanent choices of identity have the power to tear a family completely to pieces, only to bind it back together again, more closely but differently, than it has ever been before.

Thy Will Be Done highlights that point of tension where gender, family relationships and faith intersect as contextualized in the Presbyterian Church in particular, and in the broader religious community in general. At issue is the organized Christian Church, with all its political and financial power, as one of the fiercest battlegrounds for LGBT rights and gender recognition. And as for Sara, she actively seeks not only to participate in the Ministry as an openly transgendered person, but as an activist she seeks to transform a world – spiritual and otherwise – that operates by conventional notions of sex and gender. Sara’s journey weaves an absorbing story of struggle, hope, and the celebration of the human spirit.

Jaye
McBride
Join us in Salon A of the Commonwealth Ballroom for a night of laughs with Jaye McBride.

Jaye McBride is an upstate New York comedian who's been featured all across the capital district as well as New York City, Vegas and LA. She's worked with comedy greats like Aziz Ansari, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait and many others. She's also appeared in the Boston Comedy festival, Maine Comedy Festival and She Devil comedy festival. In addition to stand-up, Jaye has written, produced and acted in a variety of short films. When not performing on-stage or on-screen Jaye writes "The Comedy Blog" for the Albany's Times Union and speaks at colleges all across the country with her lecture about being transgender called "Trans 102: the Chamber of Secrets".

Having transitioned in 2007, Jaye is uniquely qualified to talk about awkward first dates, strained family relationships and self-acceptance. Make no mistake though, Jaye McBride is not a gimmick or one-trick pony. Being transgender doesn't just make her a great target at roasts; it has also given her a uniquely dark and dry sense of humor that will leave you laughing when you know you really shouldn't'. She is one genuinely funny lady!
