Rev. Joanne

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.

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

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!

Chestnut

Rev. Marcie

Brielle
Ross
If you grew up like me being taught that God is an angry old man who hates anything gay and is waiting to punish you the moment you mess up, then you may need your theology, or view of God, updated. Come discuss a God who is both male and female yet neither, who is a loving Parent and the embodiment of Grace and Love. We will also discuss those problematic Bible passages that have been either twisted or taken out of context to support someone's bias and condemn the LGBT community. This will be from a Christian POV, but all beliefs are welcome to attend and share their journeys as well.

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.

Birch

Bree
Fram

Mrs. Peg
Fram
Peg and Bree have been together for 22 years and have two children (13 and 9), but for 16 of those years no one knew the whole story. Peg described it best as living an edited life, where we always had to keep a censor in place between our thoughts and what we said or wrote. Bree revealed that there was something a bit different about her a few weeks into the relationship, but it stayed between the two of them for many years due to internal and external factors. When the military changed their policy regarding transgender service, Bree was able to come out publicly. Not without a bit of fear, the family jumped into the unknown. This workshop will cover some of our history together and the challenges we've faced along the way. It will touch on life in the closet, telling the kids, coming out, transition, relationship issues, mental health challenges and the value of visibility. Audience questions and participation is welcome.

10:30A It's NOT Not Natural – The Biology of Sex and Gender Continuing Education Dr. Brenda Vulpes Salon C

Dr. Brenda
Vulpes
The title makes reference to the frequent assertion that being transgender is not natural. Statements such as, “it goes against the laws of nature”, reflect a lack of understanding of sexual expression in the natural world. This raises the question, what do sex and gender really mean from a scientific perspective? This workshop will explore how the sexes differ, how they are similar, and how sexual expression and gender identity are more naturally viewed as a broad range of forms and behaviors. We will examine mechanisms of sex determination and development, including the roles of chromosomes, genes, hormones, and the environment. The extreme diversity of sexual expression in nature provides the basis for understanding, just what is natural?

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

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.

3:30P Telling Your Children and Family Members Continuing Education Dr. Michele Angello Fir

Dr. Michele
Angello
There are many factors to consider in coming out to your children or loved ones. First, do they need to know at all, if you are not publicly transitioning? Of course, there are the how, when, what, and where issues to tell family, not to mention the developmental level of the kids in question and the knowledge/support of their other parent. These factors will all be addressed in this workshop. Let's talk about your level of comfort with yourself and your existing relationships with your children and family. What are your goals? What do you want them to feel and to understand about this part of you? How can you help them to feel safe and loved through this transition in your family? We will go over some basic recommendations to keep in mind, but also invite you to ask your own questions and share your personal experiences with telling your children - your fears, successes, disasters, and everything in between. Please join us for this discussion. I can't tell you how to deal with your children, but I'm sure that listening to others' ideas will be helpful.

If you like Mexican style food then you'll love El Sol! But don't think this is the kind of food you'll find at a typical Mexican food chain because at El Sol the fare is decidedly more refined. From dishes like Ceviche, Spicy Camarones a la Diabla, or Crab Enchiladas Verdes, the owners of El Sol create authentic Mexican dishes that excite and satisfy the palette. The El Sol kitchen staff will ensure each dish is carefully prepared and whether you like it mild or with a spicy edge, they'll be certain to accommodate your individual taste. To compliment your dining experience, El Sol offers a full-service bar so order a Jamaica Flavored Margarita or a Blue Hibiscus to complement those awesome Lobster Enchiladas. Bienvenidos! Entree prices range from $14 to $25 with an average price of around $18. Dinner at individual expense.
