TransCon is a safe space to learn, educate and empower the transgender community and allies. In an effort to gain a wide spectrum of voices and to provide equal opportunity for necessary topics, we are opening up a competitive call for proposals process for those interested in facilitating a workshop at this year’s TransCon. We encourage all to submit. If you have not presented a workshop before and would like to, but feel that you would benefit from partnering with a mentor/ experienced presenter on your workshop, we can offer a mentor or co- presenter to assist you.
