Despite our varied experience in our families--both of origin and of choice, it is the presenter's opinion family ties are precious to us. Maintaining families across a gender transition is often an incredible challenge and journey for all involved, particularly for children of transgender adults. This workshop will focus on the methods the presenter has successfully used in his private practice over the past thirty plus years to transition families (and the relationships within the family) along with the transperson.

What does it mean to you to participate (or wish to participate) in sports as a Trans/GNC POC? The potential benefits of sport--for the body, mind, spirit--are significant: but how do we navigate sport as Trans/GNC bodies of color? In this community-centered workshop, participants will explore their own and others’ challenges, barriers, successes, concerns, and accomplishments as TPOC participating in or wishing to participate in sport. TPOC youth voices will be centered and prioritized in this session, and non-TPOC-youth are encouraged to attend as allies. Collaboratively facilitated by a TPOC young person and white trans adult. In breakout groups, (a) TPOC youth will collaborate to identify strategies to access sport in safer, affirming ways while (b) Non-TPOC-youth participants will consider the experiences of TPOC youth in sport and identify allyship strategies to support and center the experiences of TPOC youth in sport.
3:30P Developing Best Practices for A Student’s Gender Transition (K-12) Youth & Family Program Rev. Moonhawk River Stone Duchess

Rev. Moonhawk River
Stone
With the recent changes at the federal level with the Trump administration we are likely to see the severe curtailing of all Title IX protections for LGB, but particularly T youth. In light of that, however, increasingly youth are undergoing gender transitions at all levels of the K-12 school experience. This workshop is designed to address the needs of administration, faculty, and students as a student undertakes a gender transition in school by developing best practices that addresse the needs of all concerned even when federal guidelines and/or protections may be removed. This is a practical hands-on workshop. Educators, parents and caregivers of transgender youth welcome.
