Presenter Application

Presenter applications are now open for the 2017 conference! Submissions will close on September 1st.

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

  • Trans: Provide practical information, tools, tips, etc. for trans identified folks. 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 Noncomforming and/or Intersex Youth, Gender Diversity through time and around the world.
  • Youth: Provide practical and theoretical information aimed for youth. Ideas include: Trans History, Coming Out to your Parents & Families, Support for Trans youth.

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, or if you would like to present on HRT, please consider other issues, like accessibility (ordering HRT online) 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.

This year you have two options for presentation length. You have the option of requesting a longer or shorter session. The longer session allows for 80 minutes presentation time while the shorter session allows for 65 Minutes (a 15 minute difference).

*Note: Workshop selection will be competitive due to the limited number of workshops we are able to offer. Please be thorough in completing your submission form, incomplete submissions will not be considered.
