Elm

Amber
Brown

AJ
Schaeffer
We know you have goals for what you want out of your transition! Self-advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself and make decisions about your own life, knowing your strengths and challenges, knowing your rights, and being able to share your needs with others. All too often, trans and gender-diverse people must be their own, and sometimes only, advocate to access necessary health care and social services.

In this workshop we will disuss what being your own advocate looks like, what gets in the way, and how to get what you need out of medical visits, your transition journey, and your interpersonal relationships.

But what if you struggle to advocate for yourself? We haven't forgotten about the allies, friends, family, and community advocates! We have tips and tricks for our supporters too.

Mrs. Karen Lehman
Ms. Jennifer Lehman
Salon D

Ms. Susan
Bienvenu

Mrs. Karen
Lehman

Ms. Jennifer
Lehman
Discussions often focus on the needs of the transitioning transgender individual, somewhat exclusive to the needs of the relationship with a partner. This seminar will turn the focus to the relationship between the transgender person and their spouse or significant other. Transition is a very difficult time for a couple, and frequently leads to the loss of the relationship. Your presenter does not believe that this has to be the inevitable outcome, and hopes to offer her experience with her late spouse Jude, and that of friends and acquaintances who have gone through transition of a partner, in the hope that others can find these experiences useful. Aspects discussed includes "couples transition" and skills in languaging and negotiation, managing expectations and maintaining open lines of communication. These approaches are proven techniques in couples counseling, and helped tremendously during Jude's transition. Please come join us for discussions and a few exercises that can help bring a new understanding to the power of language and negotiation.

2:00P Medical Emergencies While Presenting Authentically “Under-Cover” Ms. Christine Daily Birch

Ms. Christine
Daily
It is the nightmare so many people envision but do not know how to prepare for – “What happens when I am secretly presenting as my authentic self and have a medical emergency?” What if you are in an accident but conscious?

2:00P Practicing Authentic Faith While Living Authentic Life: How to be Faithful and Transgender Rev. Grace Ferris Dogwood

Rev. Grace
Ferris
Although rainbow flags are starting to be flown outside a growing number of churches and synagogues, the majority of mainline houses of worship in all faith traditions shun transgender people. Openly transgender Catholic Priest and activist Grace Ferris (she/her) will lead a discussion on how transgender people can continue to practice their faith, regardless of their own faith tradition. Differences and similarities between various denominations will be explored and described so that participants will be able to research houses of worship in their own communities that are closely aligned with individual religious preferences. A male Southern Baptist minister before being radically transformed to become a trans-female Catholic priest, Mother Grace has a comprehensive understanding of a wide range of religious traditions and the compassion to effectively minister in a way that is meaningful for those in her care. Mother Grace will also serve as needed as an interfaith chaplain at the conference, making herself available to anyone wanting pastoral care. She will meet people where they are spiritually, never proselytizing or evangelizing. Mother Grace will also offer Mass with Eucharist lovingly shared with anyone wishing to partake on Saturday evening and/or Sunday morning if there is sufficient interest.
2:00P Transition in Communities Ms. Lilia Weber Elm

Ms. Lilia
Weber
Are you thinking about transition but worried about losing your circle? Long ago, the model for a transgender person to socially transition was to sever all connections with their current network of friends and colleagues and start from zero. That path had huge costs to the individual and isn't the generally accepted model anymore. Lilia will discuss a path of transition where one stays connected to their full life and can achieve a greater connection to their communities throughout transition. Lilia will present her experience with her transition and the communities that have given her strength and helped her to stay grounded during life’s ongoing transition. This workshop will have time for group discussion and the sharing of what communities have helped folks stay connected. What communities give you strength?
2:00P Anxiety - The Elephant in Your Room Continuing Education Dr. Michele Angello Fir

Dr. Michele
Angello
Anxiety can be a confusing and frustrating companion. For some, it is a byproduct of gender identity issues.

This workshop is geared towards addressing some strategies for understanding and managing anxiety, as well as helping others to be aware of how to help someone who is trying to cope with this condition.
2:00P Transgender Voice Training Anna Lantry Hemlock

Anna
Lantry
Voice can be a major source of gender dysphoria, misgendering, and general discomfort for many transgender and gender diverse people. Through proper training, it is possible to develop a more feminine, masculine, or androgynous voice, and have a voice that matches your identity as a person. As a transgender woman myself with many years of voice coaching experience, I understand these challenges from both a personal and pedagogical perspective. In this presentation, I will go over the individual elements of voice, what variations in each of these elements lead to voices sounding or being perceived a certain way, and how one can consciously and effectively train each of these elements to change the quality and perceptions of one's voice along gender lines. Elements covered include: pitch, pitch variation, resonance/timbre, vowel and consonant shaping, posture/breathing technique, larynx height, and cadence. Time permitting, there may be an opportunity to work with one or two volunteers.

3:30P Advocacy - For Yourself and Others (How to Game the System) Rev. Joanne Carroll Birch

Rev. Joanne
Carroll
Becoming your own self-advocate as a trans-identified person is essential to obtaining quality health care, and getting the essential agency supports for transition, wellness, and just being able to thrive. There are countless horror stories where many in the transgender community have encountered barriers that seemingly are unsurmountable. Some of those stories have been exacerbated by the lockdowns and quarantines necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic, however, as we know well, denying necessary services to the transgender community has been the way of doing business for far too long. The goal of this presentation is to identify ways to make your individual path to authenticity free of roadblocks and then helping others overcome their speedbumps.

3:30P Transgender Personalities in History (from the 15th Century through the 1860s) Melissa Morton Dogwood

Melissa
Morton
Since humankind began to define the boundaries of gender behavior, there have been people who have defied or crossed over those boundaries. Hear about some of these individuals, from the 15th century through the 1860s. Some of them were male to female, others of them were female to male. Some of them lived as transgender for most of their lives, others for only brief but significant periods in their lives. The deeds of some of these people have inspired books, plays, movies, and even operas. All of them left a legacy of some sort. Although this seminar has been presented before, Melissa changes the roster of historical figures presented each time she does this seminar. Brief biographies of each individual profiled are available upon request.

Whether that's traveling, flying in planes, volunteering, getting paid work, or finding a path to full-time womanhood, you have sisters who can listen and provide feedback from their own lives.
3:30P Gender Affirming Facial Surgery: Using Computer Animations to Help Explain Surgical Options for Transmasculine, Transfeminine, and Non-Binary Individuals Dr. Alexander Facque Hemlock

Dr. Alexander
Facque
Gender affirming facial surgeries are highly sought out amongst transgender and gender diverse individuals and for many patients have helped to lessen their gender dysphoria. However, a comprehensive guide to facial gender affirming procedures does not truly exist and the many options present can be confusing to patients and their families. In an effort to better explain the basis of gender affirming facial surgery, Dr. Alexander Facque will show the effects of a testosterone influenced puberty on the developing face and then will demonstrate how these procedures are be used to either reverse or mimic these effects. Using video animation, Dr. Facque will explain the specific procedures that can be used to help feminine-spectrum, masculine-spectrum, and non-binary trans patients achieve their gender-affirming facial surgery goals. The goal of this workup is to help individuals better understand the options involved in facial surgery, so that they may feel empowered and educated when discussing options with their surgeon.
