First Event is one of the longest running conferences in the U.S. for transgender and gender expansive people and those who love and support them. After 1 year off due to COVID-19, we are all excited to be back for the 41st time in 2022.
First Event 2022 will be held January 12 – 16th at the iconic Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood.
Over 100 workshops provide an incredible opportunity to learn, grow, and connect. Workshop tracks include transmasculine, transfeminine, youth & family, and health & wellness.
