Imagine a place of wall to wall trans people and allies
« on: March 26, 2019, 03:55:05 pm »
   I was at just such a place this weekend. We invaded, took over, and had a blast. I am speaking of the Keystone Conference of course. A shout out to Lillian, Randi, Joyce, Jenn, and Karen, some of the wonderful folks we met. ?For you newbies out there, this is done at a hotel. It lasts 4 or 5 days, and has all kinds of informational presentations, lunches and dinners with guest speakers, and a big dance with a live band. Some high points for me involved going over to Sephora to get a makeover lesson, listening to some great speakers, and dancing my butt off to the band, Wicked Jezebel. Wow, it was good music. I was determined to let my hair down and really dance with my soul in it. Oh, I showed off my new push up bra, although I forgot to take pictures. Two speakers I heard were very good also. One was the trans Democratic nominee for Gov. from Vermont. The other was a conservative Christian mom from Texas who has a transgender daughter. She told a compelling story about her journey and that of her daughter. I managed to find her later and give her a hug from this transgender atheist. lol It was all good! Anyway, it is a very nurturing place for first time outers. The staff at the Sheraton were all amazing. I was happy not to run into my least favorite doctor but that's another story. Anyone else attend?

Dear Moni:
I am very thrilled to read your uplifting report...  you shared so many good things going on at the Keystone Conference.
Your story about the Christian Mom with a transgender daughter touched my heart strings.

Unfortunately there is nothing like that going on anywhere near where I live...  I am glad that there is air travel available!!!!   Anyway this is a bad time for me to take any time off to do anything other than my office work...
...tax season is in FULL SWING!!!!

I very much thank you for sharing your wonderful recap of the conference event.
Hugs and best wishes as always,
Danielle

Hi Danielle and Rachel,
   I will have to look for her last name. Her first name is Kimberly. You can then read the story. It was sad to leave such good company. Maybe next year we can meet again Rachel. Danielle, I would think there are some events on your side of the country, maybe at a different time of year. Hugs ladies!
