Why a conference on gender?

Gender Odyssey is a place for us to gather together, share our lives, learn from one another, and celebrate our communities.  This conference offers over 60 workshops addressing the practical aspects of trans lives, including: legal issues; intersections of race and gender; coming out to family and friends; transitioning at work; hormones and surgery; and dating, sex, and relationships.  Accompanying events include a vendor fair, art exhibit, BBQ, cabaret, all-ages dance, and more.


This conference is also open to anyone interested in the topics to be covered.   

Whether you are new to thinking about your gender, well-established in your identity, FTM, trans, genderqueer, MTF, part of any of these communities because of the people you love, or simply questioning the role of gender in your life, FTM 2006: A Gender Odyssey is open to you. 


What would you like to see at Gender Odyssey?   

One way to participate is to submit workshop ideas!  The majority of workshops and panels offered at this conference are selected from our attendees’ own programming submissions.  Last year’s outreach efforts were successful in measurable ways and we want to continue in this vein.  We invite and encourage workshop proposals especially in the following areas:

Submissions from people of color on all topics
Older and/or post-transitioned FTMs and transmen
Medical/mental health professionals
Families
Partners—past, present, and future

From the Calendar page: (via link just under the "News: Please be sure to review The Site Rules" and search box.)

At the bottom of the calendar you should see, "Post Event" text, two of them actually; I believe those are the links referred to.

NOTE that those links are not on this page but rather when you are looking at the calendar.

There is also a "Link to Calendar" link at the bottom of this page, however I am not sure if that will be present for you or not.

If I could ever get out of this country I'd go. I sent my citizenship stuff in for change last August and all I get is letters saying 'it's taking a bit longer than we thought it would'. Arrgh. I do love Canada, but would like to step outside it once in a while.

No, because I wasn't born in Canada. I need proof of citizenship to cross the border.
