Transgender Symposium: Understanding the Gender Spectrum

November 5th, 2016
Transgender Symposium: Understanding the Gender Spectrum is a one-day conference that focuses on educating professionals about current topics relevant to transgender people and aims to increase understanding of how to be affirming and supportive. This conference will provide basic information about vocabulary and terminology related to gender identity and expression, offer an opportunity to hear a panel of transgender-identified individuals talk about their personal experiences, disseminate information related to the medical and mental health of transgender people, explore current issues relevant to trans students in academia, and offer suggestions for how to be more affirming towards transgender people. Gina Duncan of Equality Florida will be the keynote speaker. Click Here for the Agenda.

Special registration note: We are asking you to choose your personal gender pronoun (PGP) as part of the learning experience ofTransgender Symposium: Understanding the Gender Spectrum. We cannot always know what someone’s PGP is by looking at them. Asking and correctly using someone’s personal pronoun is one of the most basic ways to show your respect for their gender identity.

When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric (or, often, all of the above.) It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender.

You will be asked to select your PGP when registering

There are a limited number of scholarships available for participants. Submit a one paragraph word document stating how you would use this training to benefit the Gainesville community. Send your application to Brittany Evans at by October 24th, 2016.
