Call for Workshops

Workshop deadline November 14th

First Event offers workshops of broad interest to the transgender and gender non-conforming communities. Workshops are organized along special interest tracks including health and wellness, transmasculine, transfeminine, youth & family, and workplace ally.

Presenting a workshop is a great way to connect with the community, whether you are seeking to give back, to share your story, or to educate.

All workshop presenters must comply with the First Event COVID policies, which are subject to change based on evolving local, state, and federal guidance and regulations.

We are pleased to accept workshop proposals until November 14, 2021.
