Gender Conference East's mission is to provide a safe and supportive space dedicated tot he needs of children and youth across the gender spectrum, as well as their families and the professionals working with them. Learn more about us, our understanding of gender, and how we choose our programming.
In 2014, about 450 people attended, in 2015, over 700 people joined us.
We had guests from across the United States and ranging in age from 2 to 72.
They included people of all backgrounds, speaking various languages at home, coming from every race and education level. We awarded over 30 scholarships making it affordable for anyone who wanted to attend. We came with our own stories, identifying as all gender identities and sexual orientations, in all different kinds of families. But we have one common trait: we are professionals, families and friends who want to work together to support our children and youth. Seeming different brought us together, and now no one can feel alone. We are all one family.
