Gender Odyssey Family Conference

For Families and Kids

Gender Odyssey Family is an annual conference for families who are working to navigate the day-to-day realities of raising a gender non-conforming or transgender child. As one of the only opportunities in the country to find valuable resources, information and networking opportunities, Gender Odyssey Family provides real tools to support and encourage your child’s self-discovery in regard to their gender.

When people ask me how they can get comfortable with their loved one/family member’s gender identity I recommend immersion through attendance at Gender Odyssey!
