Gender Odyssey Family is pleased to announce that Chaz Bono and Cheryl Kilodavis will be coming to this year’s conference. Chaz and Cheryl will be profiling their best-selling books, Transition and My Princess Boy, respectively.
Chaz Bono, adult transgender child of famed entertainers Sonny and Cher, began a very public transition from female to male and has written the book, Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man and was profiled in the highly successful 2011 Sundance documentary, Becoming Chaz, which premiered last month on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) channel.
Cheryl Kilodavis is the author of My Princess Boy, the beautiful children’s book inspired by her own son, a boy who loves pink, sparkly things, and dresses. This is a story about acceptance and unconditional love. Kilodavis speaks nationally about her book, her family, and the societal response to her book.
The Gender Odyssey Family conference, the first family-centered event for people raising transgender and gender non-conforming children and teens, returns for the its fourth annual event at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, August 5-7, 2011. This three-day conference will offer strong family programs, plus national experts, panel discussions, and interactive forums where parents can safely explore issues related to raising children who fit outside of society’s current gender expectations. In addition, Gender Odyssey Family offers a Kids Day Camp and includes exciting programming geared towards gender non-conforming children and teens. (Full press release)
