    I attended GO for the first time this year and it was such an amazing, informative, supportive experience. I feel so much more able to support my son in his transition. I’m hoping to attend in 2017 to build on the knowledge I gained this year.

    2016 was an interesting year for our family. I’ve gone from knowing very little about transgender individuals, to having two sons who are transgender and learning all I can to support and advocate for them.
    I would like to attend Gender Odyssey with my 14yo transgender son and with the 18yo transgender young man who joined our family this year after leaving his birth family.

    We attended Gender Odyssey 2016 with our entire family. We are from Canada and have not come across any opportunity like this. Our journey began in the summer of 2015 with our oldest coming out to us as a MTF transgender and then our youngest came out in October 2015 also as MTF transgender. We were on a steep learning curve as a family! We wanted to do whatever we could to help educate us and help us to move forward in this unfamiliar journey. Attending GO 2016 I believe helped us to save our relationships! Our hope is to attend again as a family and possibly with some friends/partners of our adult children.

    From the moment we walk through the doors to the Gender Odyssey Family Conference, it’s like coming back to our home town.
    We don’t know everyone, but we all have an invisible bond. We know we are accepted. We know we are loved. We know that we don’t have to watch our words, or go through the tiring mental process of figuring out what we can, or cannot say to each person. Just to be safe, and accepted.
    It is so amazing to see our 15 year old transgender daughter smile, and look around and know that these are her friends. Her smile is real. Not the one she puts on to be brave. We love you all! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Aidan, Kristin, Gil, and everyone that works so hard to make this possible. You are leaving an amazing legacy of love–and I’m not just saying that to win the conference pass!!!! HAhaha

    Really looking forward to the first one in 2017! Glad to be part of this group

    2016 was my first year at Gender Odyssey Family, attending with my 17-year-old transgender son, as well as my sister-in-law and my 19-year-old nonbinary niece. Given that my son had only come out shortly before, my learning curve was steep but rewarding. Above and beyond my own personal education, though, the thing I loved most about the conference was the exposure to an entire spectrum of unique, courageous, and awesome individuals I might never have encountered otherwise. This is an entire world that many people will live their whole life without experiencing, and I’m so grateful to have found my way here.

    I have attended GO family conference the last 2 years. The first year was shocking and I learned so much!! Very overwhelming in a wonderful way!! The second year I was blown away with how much I took away from the conference, even though I thought we “had it together”. The conference hits on so many levels- education, communication, emotional, social…. A very important event for our family!! It’s also an amazing place for my transdaughter to connect with other kids. SHE LOVES KIDS CAMP!!

  8. Angela Harkins says:

    I attended the 2016 conference with my transitioning transgender daughter (age 9). While we were both scared and nervous to attend, we both had an amazing time. She was so scared to enter the kids camp, but after a 1/2 day there, she didn’t want to leave. She learned she wasn’t alone and there was so much love and support in a safe place. As a parent, the knowledge I learned was a little overwhelming. So much information, so many seminars to attend. My husband couldn’t make it this year, but we’re registering as a family next year, so we can be sure not to miss out on any seminars. I wish every family with a transgender child could attend this conference. So much to learn, understand, love, and support. Our family will be attending this conference for as long as Aiden puts it on. We couldn’t be more thankful we live in this area and have the means and opportunity to attend. Thank you to all who make this available to us. You are all changing the world and impacting so many lives in a positive way.
