September TransOhio Newsletter

3rd Annual TransOhio Transgender & Ally Symposium

The weekend of August 13-15, 2010, over 250 people converged on Columbus, Ohio to attend the 3rd Annual TransOhio Transgender & Ally Symposium. The weekend included the first Provider’s Day and focused on education and professional development for students, providers of Trans health, mental and legal services. The General Symposium’s keynote was given by S. Bear Bergman, Sing If You’re Glad To Be Trans — While the difficult narratives of trans life are valid and deserve our attention, is it not perhaps enough with the all-misery-all-the-time tranny channel? Being trans is not a reason for pity, scorn, shame, or apology. This lecture celebrates trans bodies, communities, awareness, sex, love, particular talents, successes and self-creation with a faultless logic and good humor that may just make you appreciate transfolks (or being trans) in a whole new way.
WHAT’S NEW: We’ll return to our regular TransOhio monthly newsletter format in October. If you’d like to submit articles for the newsletter, please visit Newsletters for details!
