The goal of this summit is for youth 22 and under from Massachusetts/New England that identify with, or could fall under, the label ‘transgender’ or youth who are in some way connected to the transgender youth community, such as partners/friends, to meet and connect with other transgender and gender variant youth. At the summit, youth will have the opportunity to share ideas, learn about their legal rights, the larger transgender community, participate in workshops and fun activities.
There will also be a separate track with a full day of programming for parents and/or guardians of transgender and/or gender questioning youth. Parents/Guardians activities include such areas as: addressing legal issues and advocating for your child, health care with Dr. Ralph Vetters of Sidney Borum Jr. Health Center, and time for networking and guided support groups.
This event is free and light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration opens in August.
