The focus of this years unique conferencethe only one of its kind in the worldrepresents our commitment to educating professionals and our communities about our health needs, to empowering transpeople, and to embracing our unique identities and realities.
THC began as a collaboration between local transgender activists, advocates, community members, allies and health and service providers. In the past five years, THC has grown to accommodate the health conference needs of transgender individuals, families, providers and allies on a national level. The conference continues to grow, yet organizers seek to keep it as accessible as possible by providing free registration for Community Days, low-cost meals, community housing, child care and travel scholarships to those in need.
