Getting the Sex You Want: Disclosure, Exposure, and Erotic Communication

June 5 @ 5:40 pm - 7:00 pm
Pennsylvania Convention Center,
1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107 United States
+ Google Map

Description: Getting the sex you want often starts with being able to express what you want — verbally or non-verbally.  Many people are concerned about how to disclose (or not disclose) not only their trans status, history, or body but also other aspects of who they are (disability, self-image concerns, HIV status, etc.)   Figuring out strategies about what to tell, who to tell, how to tell, how much to tell, when to tell, if to tell can be challenging and…

Navigating Therapeutic Options for Healing from Sexual Assault

June 6 @ 8:45 am - 10:05 am
Pennsylvania Convention Center,
1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107 United States

This workshop will help survivors and loved ones learn about available…

Pennsylvania Convention Center,
1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107 United States
+ Google Map

Description: Never in U.S. history has a stigmatized minority made as many political and social advances as quickly as the transgender community has.  Most of these advances affect trans people of all ages, but some are specific to trans elders, giving us access to many more services, protections, and opportunities than we had even a few years ago.  This workshop is designed as a participatory game show, so come prepared to have fun with other participants while you learn about…
