9:00A Native American Transgender Spirituality Continuing Education Family & Youth Program Educator's Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Dr. Kenneth Dollarhide Birch

Dr. Kenneth
Dollarhide
Among many native nations and tribes there are three or four genders. In many of these nations and tribes transgender people are seen as one who has been blessed and they hold a powerful and sacred place within the community. In some tribes they marry, often becoming the second wife. In some they participate in all the women's ceremonies. In addition they fulfill sacred rituals, give secret sacred names, are often consulted about marriages, etc. In this workshop we will look at and examine this tradition that has unfortunately all but disappeared among many nations and tribes.

This panel of spouses/significant others (SO’s) provides an opportunity for transgender individuals to ask questions of other SO’s regarding relationships, feelings, and emotions.

The SO’s on this panel have asked their transgender spouses to not be in the room so as to provide an open and honest forum.

9:00A Keeping your Online Identity Safe + Private Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Mrs. Stephanie Anne Jeffries Salon E

Mrs. Stephanie Anne
Jeffries
Every day, we read of the latest information breach, wherein identities are stolen and personally-identifiable information is lost. This recurring, frightening fact of 21st century life is especially concerning to trans people - many of whom have strong and deeply personal reasons to tightly-control their online identity, whether you're in stealth mode, concerned about being unintentionally outed, or simply worried about what you might lose if hacked. The session offers a sister's expert guidance on keeping your online identity safe, controlled and consistent - so that you alone can manage how out your trans identity is. The content is ideal for anyone who wishes to maintain the privacy of their identity - but will be particularly useful to anyone who needs to keep their trans and non-trans identities separated online. We'll review several scenarios for (and principles of) maintaining privacy of identity. Then, we'll dive straight into organized and actionable advice which you'll need to take full control of your identity (or identities) online. Throughout the program, sharing of audience insights and participation are warmly welcomed but not expected.

10:30A Transgender Personalities in History (from the 15th Century through the 1860s.) Family & Youth Program Educator's Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Melissa Morton Dogwood

Melissa
Morton
Since humankind began to define the boundaries of gender behavior, there have been people who have defied or crossed over those boundaries. Hear about some of these individuals, from the 15th century through the 1860s. Some of them were male to female, others of them were female to male. Some of them lived as transgender for most of their lives, others for only brief but significant periods in their lives. The deeds of some of these people have inspired books, plays, movies, and even operas. All of them left a legacy of some sort. Although this seminar has been presented before, the roster of historical figures and their stories are new. Brief biographies of each individual profiled are available upon request.
10:30A What about Part Time Trans Women---We Are Trans, Too! Mrs. Jennifer White Elm

Mrs. Jennifer
White
What About Part Time?

“Transgender” encompasses a wide variety on the gender spectrum, including those who dress or express their femininity or masculinity “part-time”. While nearly all begin part-time, some remain “dual-gendered”, either by choice or constrained by outside factors. Exploring and sharing the reasons why, and our respective solutions, we gain greater understanding, support, mechanisms for coping, and more confidence in our lives and exploration of selves. This talk is open to all, including significant others, full time trans men and women, and those simply interested in the subject. The workshop will explore these issues, and include open discussion the last third.

Mattis
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) brought the unique needs of transgender inmates to the forefront of correctional awareness. As part of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections’ (PA DOC) efforts to ensure transgender inmate health and safety needs are met across each of its facilities, a need for peer support was identified and implemented in an innovative forum. In this session, attendees will be presented with an overview of the PA DOC’s virtual transgender support group and keys for replicating the service within correctional agencies. The treatment and support of transgender individuals within a correctional setting is often limited to hormone therapy and individual counseling with staff who have limited experience working with transgender individuals. Compounding these limitations, transitioning inmates often have a limited peer support within their assigned facilities. Those inmates who are questioning their gender identity or who have made the decision to transition behind the walls are often left with challenges and questions that are best answered by individuals from community support services, relevant state agencies and those who have previously traveled the same path. This session will cover outreach and partnership with an outside advocacy organization, TransCentral PA and the recruitment of subject matter experts, from local LGBT Health Center Alder Health to form a virtual transgender community across multiple facilities. In this session we will share our established ground rules, how to partner with other state agencies and how to overcome technological challenges to establish the group.
12:00P Thursday Luncheon with Guest Speaker Gavin Grimm Family & Youth Program Educator's Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Gavin Grimm Commonwealth Ballroom

Gavin
Grimm
Gavin Grimm came out as transgender during his sophomore year in high school. With his principal's permission, he used the boy's restrooms at school for almost two months without any problems, but then a handful of parents went to the school board to complain about him. Eventually, the school board voted to ban him from using the boys' restrooms at school. With help from the American Civil Liberties Union, Grimm sued his school. His case worked its way up to the Supreme Court and was set to be argued in March 2017. However, the Supreme Court sent Grimm's case back to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to be reconsidered in light of the Department of Justice and Education pulling back the previous administration's Title IX guidance clarifying protections for transgender students.

2:00P Movie Screening "Thy Will Be Done - A Transexual Woman's Journey through Family & Faith", a film by Alice Bouvrie Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Hemlock
Thy Will Be Done follows Male-to-Female Transsexual Sara Herwig in her journey to ordination in the Presbyterian Church. The Church’s conservative groups do not recognize Sara as female and challenge her fitness and eligibility to be a pastor. In addition, it is crucial to Sara’s success that she has support from friends and family. The documentary explores the way in which alternative lifestyles and permanent choices of identity have the power to tear a family completely to pieces, only to bind it back together again, more closely but differently, than it has ever been before.

Thy Will Be Done highlights that point of tension where gender, family relationships and faith intersect as contextualized in the Presbyterian Church in particular, and in the broader religious community in general. At issue is the organized Christian Church, with all its political and financial power, as one of the fiercest battlegrounds for LGBT rights and gender recognition. And as for Sara, she actively seeks not only to participate in the Ministry as an openly transgendered person, but as an activist she seeks to transform a world – spiritual and otherwise – that operates by conventional notions of sex and gender. Sara’s journey weaves an absorbing story of struggle, hope, and the celebration of the human spirit.

2:00P Keys to Success in Voice Feminization Nina Irani Birch

Nina
Irani
Many women long for that beautiful, lilting female voice that reflects who they truly are, but question whether they can achieve it. Whether you’ve tried to change your voice with YouTube videos, CD’s or a speech pathologist and haven’t reached your goal yet; or if you haven’t known where to start, the good news is that a feminine voice could be closer than you realize. In this session you will learn about the process of voice feminization - what it is, how it works, how long it takes and the keys to your success. You will learn how to avoid the most common mistakes that prevent women from getting the results they've been aspiring to. You will also learn a short vocal routine to begin to identify your feminine voice - and perhaps hear it for the very first time - and explore potential next steps in your journey towards a beautiful, authentic female voice.

2:00P DIY Couture Susannah Robinson Elm

Susannah
Robinson
Slide show based, participatory mini-workshop on Do-It-Yourself Couture -- specifically, making relatively inexpensive outfits for occasions like the Keystone Gala. We'll start with making up a dress form, and then move to the black skirt outfit made for the 2016 Gala and the dress made for last year's Gala as examples of what can be done quite reasonably using off-the shelf components. [The inspiration for the 2017 dress was the IBM-Watson Marchesa dress that Karolina Kurkova wore to the Met Gala.] If interested participants can bring articles/outfits they've created, we can share tips and techniques.

2:00P Relationship Priorities – Languaging and Negotiation: An Approach to Keeping the Relationship Together While Transitioning Continuing Education Spouse/SO Program Dr. Judith Bienvenu
Ms. Susan Bienvenu

Dr. Judith
Bienvenu

Ms. Susan
Bienvenu
Discussions often focus on the needs of the transitioning transgender individual, somewhat exclusive to the needs of the relationship with a partner. This course will turn the focus to the relationship between the transgender person and their spouse. Transition is a very difficult time for a couple, and frequently leads to the loss of the relationship. We do not believe this has to be the inevitable outcome, and hope to offer our experiences in the hope that others can find them useful. We discuss aspects such as “couples transition,” and skills in languaging and negotiation. These approaches are proven techniques in couples counseling, and have helped us tremendously in our journey through Jude’s transition. Come join us for discussions and exercises that can help bring a new understanding to the power of language and negotiation.
2:00P Why Are You and I Transgender? Family & Youth Program Educator's Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Mrs. Thomas Bevan Salon E

Mrs. Thomas
Bevan
What are the potential causes of being transgender? Which are supported by evidence and which not? Surprisingly, there are several often-cited causal factors that are not supported and some are definitely refuted. In this seminar, we will review the evidence at a top level and illustrate with stories. You do not need detailed knowledge of science to follow the presentation, just interest in the subject. Some of the candidate causal factors that we will review include genetics, epigenetics, fetal testosterone levels, fetal exposure to toxic drugs and chemicals, early learning, childhood abuse, child rearing practices, culture and choice. Current evidence suggests that four of these factors work together to make someone transgender. Can you guess which ones? We will summarize the evidence and answer questions.

As a group let’s hear each other’s stories so that may learn from one another. There are always similarities and differences from where we come from. Hopefully by sharing stories you will discover where you are going and where you would like to be in your current or future relationship. So come share your story in this workshop and let’s find some strategies and new ways to communicate in the relationship you are in or would like to be in
3:30P Trans People In the Bible Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Rev. M.C. Johnson Dogwood

Rev. M.C.
Johnson
Terminology has changes for the trans experience from culture to culture and age to age. Even in Biblical times trans people had to find a way to live in their culture. Just because modern words were not used does not mean they were not there. I would like to share the trans lives I see in Scripture and explore ways to find affirmation of our lived experience as reflected in the lives of some Biblical persons. As we see how God caring for and blessing trans persons of the past, we may find it easier to believe that God would want to care and bless us. I will be sharing how imagination can be used as a helpful spiritual tool in Biblical interpretation.

3:30P Where Are You Going and How Will You Know When You Get There? Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Ms. Alexis Lake Salon C

Ms. Alexis
Lake
An interactive workshop that will explore the range of answers to the question "What is your destination? Male? Female? Trans? Other? How and why did you decide that? Do you have a course laid out? How fast or slow will you go? When will you arrive, and how will you know you are there? Who have been your role models both positive and negative? Will you enjoy the journey? What is right for YOU? Let’s talk!

This session is designed for anyone who wonders how others think about these questions, including helping professionals. I hope to help people better understand the many different ways of thinking about gender, and presentation, and perhaps to better understand their own travel plans.
3:30P Why Transphobia? Continuing Education Family & Youth Program Educator's Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Dr. Jeanine Ruhsam Salon D

Dr. Jeanine
Ruhsam
Despite the seeming popularity and acceptance of all things transgender today, 2017 has the highest rate of transwomen murdered of all years to date. Why are instances of transphobia and transmisogyny increasing? In this workshop Dr. Ruhsam will present a short lecture that explores the cultural, religious, and political history that lies behind the discrimination and disapprobation suffered by those people who transgress America’s sex/gender system. The remainder of the session will be question and answer followed by lively, interactive discussion. A thorough understanding of why most Americans hold deeply felt convictions about gender and sexuality is necessary for us to see a way towards shaping our nation’s future—a brighter future that uses the tools of justice and compassion to realign the gender/power structure.
3:30P Law Enforcement, the Criminal Justice System and the Transgender Community Family & Youth Program Transmasculine Program Spouse/SO Program Ms. Sarah Moore Salon E

Ms. Sarah
Moore
The media is full of stories that paint law enforcement in a negative way and consequently create the perception that one should be afraid of law enforcement officers. While this is a topic of great debate amongst politicians and citizens alike the inevitable fallout is the creation of some level of fear for the average person. This fear is magnified when you are the member of a group, like the transgender community, that has historically been misunderstood, marginalized, ridiculed, abused or worse. This workshop will look at various situations in which members of the transgender community may interact with law enforcement and the criminal justice system. We will explore options for successfully navigating situations that range from traffic stops to felony level criminal investigations. Attendees will receive a quick reference card with the top five tips for interacting with law enforcement. Audience participation and the sharing of personal experiences is encouraged but not required.
