First Event's 30th Anniversary Transgender Conference

Time: January 14, 2010 to January 16, 2010

Location: Boston Peabody Marriott

Organized By: Tiffany Club of New England  

Event Description:

First Event's 30th anniversary promises to be one of the best ever. New England's largest transgender conference will feature over 50 workshops, entertainment and special events.

The committee has done an outstanding job of putting together a full array of daytime and evening programming," said Jamie Hailey, chairperson of FE 2010.  

Among the highlights of this year conference is an expanded transmasculine track. Initiated and coordinated by Anderson Clark, a FTM activist seeking to increase resources for the transmasculine community, the FTM track features a lineup of speakers and workshops that will address many of the challenges that transmen face.

There is also an incredible array of workshops, discussing trans rights, spirituality, fashion, health care (and a health clinic), transition issues and surgery.  There will be performances by folk singer Karen Grenier, playwright and performer milDRED Gerestant, and a fashion show. 

Jillian Weiss will present the keynote on Saturday evening: "Are We Family?" Her message will be that we must come together and rise up as a community to demand respect, especially in regard to respect from the law.
