The CU Boulder TRANSforming Gender Conference will be held virtually on March 5, 10:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., and is free and open to CU Boulder students, staff, faculty and community members.

Sponsored by CU Boulder’s Pride Office, the conference offers an opportunity to build community and a place for allies to learn more about transgender issues and identities. Workshops and talks cover a wide variety of topics, including queering biology, transgender youth advocacy, transgender in the workplace, interviews with trans activists and explorations of trans identities. The Pride Office is part of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement’s Center for Inclusion and Social Change.

People planning to attend the Saturday, March 5, portion of the conference are asked to register for the event in advance. Virtual attendees will need to register for the March 3 keynote address by Angelica Ross, as well.
