In conjunction with the Gender Odyssey and Gender Odyssey Family conferences, Gender Diversity Education and Support Services now offers a stand-alone Pro conference in Los Angeles, in addition to GO Professional in Seattle, which may serve as a prelude to Gender Odyssey (GO) and Gender Odyssey Family (GOF) or as a stand-alone conference.

These two-day conferences are for those seeking to advance their understanding of gender variance and transgender identities. Leading experts will offer sessions covering gender identity across the lifespan.

For a sample of past programming, you may peruse our schedule and workshop info from this past year’s conference:

Submit a Workshop

We are no longer accepting workshops proposals for the 2017 LA and Seattle professional conferences.

The deadline for workshop submissions for both locations has passed.

What Do Attendees Say?

We asked attendees at least year’s GOPro what they liked best about the workshops they attended and here’s what some of them had to say:

People with all levels of experience were involved with the conversation.

Everything – totally opened my mind!

Coming together, connecting and hearing stories.

“The work that Aidan Key is doing through Gender Odyssey is absolutely fantastic. I was humbled, and moved to tears today. If we had a bunch of extra money, I would give the organization millions”.
