By Charlotte Robinson, August 21, 2017
The 16th annual Gender Odyssey conference takes place at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, Washington from August 23rd to 27th. As the transgender community struggles for equal treatment & public education continues to make headlines around the country Gender Odyssey holds its annual international conference focused on the needs & interests of this diverse population. The conference provides an array of thought-provoking workshops, discussion groups, social events & more. This annual event attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skill sharing & community. Over 1000 participants are expected to attend this year as visibility for transgender issues & communities have reached a historic high mark. Gender Odyssey’s primary objective is to offer tools to navigate obstacles & provide pathways to individual & community empowerment with conference tracks for professionals, families & transgender people of all ages. The five-day event will include Gender Odyssey Professional offering programming for medical caregivers, therapists, social workers, teachers, counselors, students & others seeking to advance their understanding of gender variance & transgender identities.
