Last year I celebrated my birthday in Washington DC with hundreds of friends and readers at the National Equality March. This year, I'll be celebrating in Phoenix, Arizona, and, of course, you're all invited.
I'll be a plenary speaker at the Transform Arizona conference this year on October 16. Presented by TransMentors International, Phoenix Pride & H.E.R.O., this Arizona gathering has become on of the most respected transgender conferences in the nation. Transmentors sponsors these conferences around the nation; New Hampshire, Oregon and Florida will also host Transform conferences this year.
This year's theme is "Uniting the T and the LBG" I'll be speaking about the importance of trans allies.
Fellow speakers include Allyson Robinson of the Human Rights Campaign, performance artist Peterson Toscano, author/editor Matt Kailey, Ernesto Ortiz from 1VCC & Phoenix Pride, and Anthony Barreto-Nedo of T.O.P.S.
The conference runs from Oct 15-17. Registration is only $25 and the host committee will find you housing if you need it. See you there! Bring a party hat!
