You Are Invited to the Annual Unity Picnic!

TransOhio is proud to host our annual Unity Picnic this year at Blendon Woods Metro Park in Westerville Ohio and all we need is you to be there!

The picnic will be held July 31st from 11AM to 6PM.

There is plenty of parking and bottled water and grilled meats will be provided along with vegetarian and vegan options too! If you can, please bring a side dish or desert to share but since we are in a public park, alcohol should be left at home.

This is always a great opportunity to network, meet new friends, and reconnect with old friends in a laid-back, friendly, and safe environment. We will see you at Blendon Woods Metro Park just off Route 161 on July 31st!

Show your Pride!

Pride and Pride activities are nearly upon us and we hope you can support TransOhio in these Pride events and activities. This summer, TransOhio is making an effort to attend all the Pride events throughout the state. The first Pride event takes place in Columbus on June 17-18 at Goodale Park. TransOhio will be sponsoring an exhibitor tent at the park during the Pride festival on Friday afternoon and evening and all day on Saturday. We need volunteers to help staff the booth. Please note that location of the booth is NOT known until the afternoon of festival and location will be posted on our Facebook page. If you can help staffing the booth please sign up using this link.

TransOhio’s 8th Annual Transgender and Ally Symposium is now open for registration!

The Symposium will be held at the Student Union on the campus of OSU May 13-15, 2016.
Providers Day with CEU’s available is Friday May 13th and the General Symposium is Saturday and Sunday. You can register for either or take advantage of reduced fees and register for all three days at a discount. Sat/ Sun General Symposium available as is Saturday and Sunday only. All packages include meals, beverages and snacks and invite to the Meet and Greet at Club Diversity on Friday evening (5:30 PM)

Register for one or more days of this three day event here!

The response to the request for workshop proposals was truly overwhelming and we have over fifty workshops scheduled over the three days of the conference as well as incredible keynote speakers and presenters from all aspects of the LGBTQ community and our allies.

While every effort is made to keep the cost of registration low to recognize the fact the transgender and gender variant/ fluid community is not always in the best situation financially, if you want to come to the Symposium but cannot afford it or can only pay a partial fee, scholarships (either full or partial) are available. (Send request for scholarship form to melissa@transohio.org) Please note that special rates also exist for youth up through high school to attend as well as their parents.

Want to be a volunteer at the Symposium – go to this site and register to help out. Thanks!

Symposium Schedules will be posted by mid-April. We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 Symposium!!
