In light of the attention athlete-turned-reality-television-star Caitlyn Jenner has drawn to transgender issues, Cal Poly will host the Your True Gender Conference from Oct. 9 to 11.
The inaugural three-day event will include talks and appearances from experts and others in the transgender community.
Speakers will include James Green, president of the World Professional Association of Transgender Health; Dr. Marci Lee Bowers, a renowned transgender surgeon; and Janet Mock, a New York Times bestselling author.
Organizers encourage transgender people, their families and allies to attend for “networking, inspiration and education.” Physical and mental health providers who wish to learn about trans communities also are encouraged to attend.
Admission is $125, or $60 for students and seniors.
Your True Gender is a California-based nonprofit organization.
