9:00A Foundation Garments for Feminine Presentation Ms. Leah Santini Ash

Ms. Leah
Santini
Proper feminine presentation is a major goal for those exploring their feminine side. While a lot of attention has been given to makeup and fashion (clothing, jewelry and shoes), foundation garments, like the structure of a house, are essential underpinnings for a realistic and natural look. This workshop is a survey of the types of garments available today. It will discuss hip and butt pads, special undergarments, corsets and cinchers, breast forms and associated bras. Sample items will be shown, and discussion from attendees as to their personal experiences will be encouraged. This workshop will appeal to a wide range of individuals on the Transgender spectrum who wish to enhance and improve on their overall look and presentation.
9:00A What Does the Bible Really Say About Gender and Sexuality? Mrs. Cindi Miller Elm

Mrs. Cindi
Miller
When it comes to gender identity and even sexual identity there is a lot of confusion and misinformation regarding how God and religion think about this topic. Cindi is going to go back to her many years studying the bible in the original languages and take a look at some of these key verses from a literary, historical, cultural, and theological viewpoint. Then, she is going to take a look at what the Bible and the evangelical concept of the divine actually do say about those who have a gender or sexual identity different than what we have adapted as the majority of humans on this planet.

Dr. James
Thomas
Dr. Thomas reveals how vocal cords function using video recordings of male, female and surgically altered vocal cords. Pitch and resonance are affected by the anatomy as well as how the anatomy is used. Surgical modification of the voice, especially Feminization Laryngoplasty (FemLar), one type of vocal cord (laryngeal) surgery is designed to obtain a feminine sounding voice and correct complications from Tracheal Shave procedures. Several other types of procedures target the frequency or pitch of the resting speaking voice to various degrees. CricoThryoid Approximation (CTA), vocal cord webbing, laser vocal cord thinning and pharyngeal narrowing procedures will be discussed and compared to each other. Not only successful interventions are covered, but complications, durability, incomplete outcomes are discussed. Options for correcting complications of any laryngeal procedures are discussed. If you have experienced a voice change after a Tracheal Shave procedure, he will discuss the correction of this problem. At the conclusion of this lecture, the listener should better understanding the concepts that can help in decision-making about the roles of voice therapy as well as when, if and what type of surgeries to consider.
10:30A Living with Crossdressing: Discovering Your True Identity Ms. Savannah Hauk Elm

Ms. Savannah
Hauk
Are you living with a partner who is a crossdresser? Are you living with the knowledge that you are a male crossdresser? Are you a cis-woman partner of a man who crossdresses? Are you struggling with what it means to be in a relationship with a man who you have discovered – by accident or his own admission – enjoys wearing feminine clothing? Join me as I set out to uncover some of the reasons why so many men (including myself) dress as women. Discover real couples who are looking for a new balance in their relationships, including the point of views of the women who decided to stand by their... ahem... men as they learn to better understand their crossdresser and learn how to cope and thrive. Somewhere amid the misconceptions, stereotypes, and ignorance is the truth about non-transitioning, non-fetish, crossdressing men. But more than that is the strength and care of the women who continue to love and support them.

This panel of spouses/significant others (SO’s) provides an opportunity for transgender individuals to ask questions of other SO’s regarding relationships, feelings, and emotions. The panel can also act as a sounding board for conversations that a transgender person may want to have with their spouse/significant other. The SO’s on this panel have asked their transgender spouses to not be in the room so as to provide an open and honest forum. This workshop may be able to offer perspective and insight on how your journey affects the ones you love.

3:30P Anti-Trans Legislation – What is it Really all About and How do we Combat it? Mx. Corinne Goodwin Birch

Mx. Corinne
Goodwin
Over the past two years scores of bills have been introduced in state, county, and local legislatures that are specifically targeting transgender individuals with discriminatory actions. This is despite the fact that polls indicate that two-thirds of all Americans – including those whose political views are on the right and the left – oppose anti-trans legislation. So, why are these bills being introduced and how do we work to defeat them? In this workshop you will get the deeper story of why a small group of legislators and political operatives are pushing these bills. We will then dive into a discussion regarding tactics that have been successfully used to combat these bills and how you can get involved.
