Gender Odyssey Conference

Gender Odyssey
Exploring Gender. Together.

Gender Odyssey is an international conference focused on the needs and interests of transgender and gender-diverse people, their loved ones, and professionals who serve them. Packed with thought-provoking parent workshops, professional training opportunities, discussion groups, networking, and social events, this one-of-a-kind annual gathering attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skill sharing and community building.

The workshops were amazing! I only wish I could clone myself so that I wouldn’t have to miss a single one!

We encourage all of our Gender Diversity families to attend Gender Odyssey. The community connections, access to doctors and lawyers, inspiration, and validation are unparalleled. Scholarships are available to make the conference accessible to everyone – no matter your circumstances.

Conference Programs

Gender Odyssey’s Professional Program is for professionals seeking to advance their understanding of gender diversity and transgender identities in children, teens, and adults. Leading experts will offer sessions covering gender identity across the lifespan and life experience. Two full days, the Professional Program includes much of the content of the Family track including bonus programming on Saturday. Some continuing education credits are available.

Gender Odyssey’s Family Program is for families who are working to navigate the day-to-day realities of raising a gender-diverse or transgender child. As one of the only opportunities in the country to find valuable resources, information, and networking opportunities, Gender Odyssey Family provides much needed guidance and connections for families as they seek optimal ways to support their child’s gender exploration.

Youth Programming – Our youth track (ages 13 – 19) provides dynamic workshops and ample social time.

Kids Day Camp – We welcome children ages 4-12 together for THREE full days of all kinds of fun games and activities—including theater, dance, art, music, scavenger hunts, and costume parades—while their parents, guardians, and caregivers attended educational sessions. Kids Camp is FREE to children of registered participants (suggested donation: $25 per child per day).
