8:00A Prayer Breakfast Rev. Joanne Carroll Dog & Pony Private Room

Rev. Joanne
Carroll
Many people like to begin their day with prayer. Prayer in the morning is good way to sidestep the distractions that come when people are struggling with issues in their lives. Come join us for inter-denominational friendship and fellowship in the back of the Dog & Pony Restaurant in their Private Dining Room. This event is open to all faiths and those individuals wanting to experience the power of common prayer. When we gather, there is power in our chorus that is lifted towards God. Morning Prayer is the best way to command the day and grow closer to each other and God.

Food and beverage at individual expense.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help others to achieve sobriety.

9:00A TransWork: Creating Economic Opportunities for the Transgender Community Ms. Jone Magagna
Ms. Lynda Waltman
Birch

Ms. Jone
Magagna

Ms. Lynda
Waltman
Finding stable and secure employment is hard enough, but navigating job searches as a transgender or non-binary person in the current times can be especially challenging. In order for members of our communities to survive and thrive, it is essential that we support each other in finding trans-affirming employment. With that goal in mind, TransWork is a trans-led economic empowerment project focused on addressing employment needs and creating entrepreneurship opportunities in the transgender/gender non-conforming (TGNC) communities in the greater Philadelphia region and beyond. In this session, we will explore the different services that are available to under- & unemployed members of the TGNC communities, including job banks/fairs, employer training programs, and job search support (resume preparation, interview skills, and job readiness.) TransWork is a program of Greater Philadelphia’s LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce (the Independence Business Alliance) and is the first program of its type to be housed within a chamber of commerce with direct ties to the LGBTQ+ business community, and serves as a model for other communities. This workshop is great for job seekers, as well as community leaders who are looking to implement similar programs in their communities. During the session, we’ll discuss how the program is structured as well as lessons we learned when designing and implementing it.

9:00A Introducing the Trans Stories Project Mx. Corinne Goodwin Dogwood

Mx. Corinne
Goodwin
Fewer than 40% of the American public claims to know a transgender person. Eastern PA Trans Equity Project wants to change that. We have launched an effort to document the lives and stories of transgender and gender nonbinary folk Pennsylvania. Most critically, we are not the ones telling the stories - we are allowing participants to do that for themselves through photos and short 500-word essays that range from the funny to the tragic to the mundane. They all support our goal of humanizing the trans experience. In this workshop we will explore some of their stories, talk about how to tell a great story and encourage you to share yours!

2:00P But You Lied To Me - A Way to Explore the Emotions (SOs Only) Ms. Susan Bienvenu Elm

Ms. Susan
Bienvenu
This is a seminar for the SOs about the emotional impact experienced as a result of the announcement by their spouse of the intention to present as, or to transition, to the opposite gender. Some SOs do not have support systems that understand both perspectives, that being, the elation of the transitioning spouse contrast with the angst of the SO. Some things that I have heard expressed is that the SO was lied to. That the transitioning spouse 'hid this from me'. Betrayal is another term used. Although I can see that perspective, I think there is a healthier point of view that can also allow the SO to process the situation and move beyond this. A lot of SOs have heard the cleansed version "I was just so upset" of the SO, but not the full on development of the emotional state over time. At every step during the way, the SO often feels that things won't get better, can't get better and just might get worse. But as we all know, there are many outcomes and just about all of them are positive. The workshop is SOs only to allow these attendees the opportunity to discuss this particular aspect - the sense of betrayal - in a room without feeling the need to edit.
2:00P Workshops TBA
