10:00A Guilt, Shame, and Fear: Confronting the Emotional Legacy of Transphobia General Program Dr. Maureen Osborne Sudbury

Dr. Maureen
Osborne
This workshop, examines the emotional triad of guilt, fear and shame that many transgender folks experience as a result of living in a transphobic society. We will talk about ways to better understand and manage these negative emotions without abandoning consideration for loved ones as they adjust to the reality of your transgender journey. All are welcome to join in this interactive conversation.
1:00P Will Religion Trump Your Transgender Rights? General Program Rachel Alpert BoxBorough

Rachel
Alpert
Opponents of LGBT rights are back in the Supreme Court. Last year they pressed the Supreme Court to invalidate transgender bathroom rights. (The administration change sent that case in limbo.) Now, shepherding a Colorado baker into the Supreme Court as a religious freedom champion for refusing to make a cake for a gay couple, they are pressing religious and “free speech” exceptions from all federal AND state anti-discrimination laws. What will happen to transgender – and all LGBT - rights?
2:30P Name and Gender Marker Changes for Identity Documents General Program Mason Dunn Hudson

Mason
Dunn
Discussion about the process for changing a name and gender marker on identity documents for trans and gender nonconforming people.
