Presenter applications are now closed for the 2017 conference.

Here are a few possible audiences you can build workshops for:

  • Trans: Provide practical information, tools, tips, etc. for trans-identified folks.
    • Ideas Include: voice coaching, legally changing your name and gender in Utah, safe sex, etc.
  • General Audience: Provide practical and theoretical information for allies, partners, families, employers, students, etc. on trans identities and gender non-conforming issues.
    • Ideas Include: gender non-conforming in the media, trans 101, trans in the family, privilege, raising transgender, gender nonconforming and/or intersex youth, gender diversity through time and around the world, etc.
  • Youth: Provide practical and theoretical information aimed at youth.
    • Ideas Include: trans history, coming out to your parents & families, support for trans youth, etc.

All presentations should take an intersectional/holistic approach, taking into account more than one identity/issue. For example, if you want to present a workshop on make-up application, take into account the different types of skin, and skin tones. If you would like to present on HRT, please consider other issues, like accessibility (ordering HRT online) and the uninsured. Focus on age, race, SES, national origin, etc. Frame your presentation with these identities in mind. Potential presenters are encouraged to submit a Spanish-speaking workshop as well.
