Transgender Women’s Summit in Kansas City!

Come as You Are

Announcing “Come as you are!”

The first major transgender summit in years will be held at the Embassy Suites Plaza hotel from 7-9 February, 2014. Organized by the Transgender Institute on behalf of the transgender community, this summit is the first of two which will be held in early 2014 right here in Kansas City!

The conference features speakers and experts on transgender issues, numerous workshops designed to help transgender women with information, tips, and advice, and promises to be a fantastic place to meet other transgender women in a safe and welcoming environment. And hey, if nothing else yours truly and my wife Fiona will both be working at the summit, so stop by and say hi!
