Welcome to First Event 2017
The Premiere Transgender Conference of the Season!
First Event 2017 will be held January 25-29, 2017 at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel in Marlboro, Massachusetts and welcomes all gender variant and questioning persons, their families, allies, and professionals to celebrate, meet old friends, make new friends, teach and learn from each other at one of the oldest and largest transgender conferences in the world.
Registration Opens September 1st, 2016
The theme for FE17 is "Let's Make A Difference". We know that this is our goal for the conference and the reason that we hold the conference each year. You can and will make a difference to yourself, and everyone you meet at FE17, and we hope you will continue to make a difference once the conference is completed.
