Join Us for Gender Odyssey San Diego!
Gender Odyssey San Diego is an international conference focused on the needs and interests of transgender and gender diverse children of all ages, their families and supporters, and the professionals who serve them.
Our conference is packed with thought-provoking workshops, including medical information and consultation opportunities, professional education, discussion groups, networking, children and youth programming, and social events. Gender Odyssey attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of connection, support, and community.
Gender Odyssey is open to all. Anyone may attend regardless of gender identity or gender expression. We embrace the presence and participation of our families, spouses and partners, organizations, and allies. We encourage the attendance of those who serve this community to expand their knowledge and understanding of gender diversity and transgender issues.
Programming for Adults, Youth, Families, and Professionals
- Gender Odyssey's Professional Program is for professionals seeking to advance their understanding of gender diversity and transgender identities in children, teens, and adults. Leading experts will offer sessions covering gender identity across the lifespan and life experience. Two full days, the Professional Program includes much of the content of the Family track including bonus programming on Saturday. Some continuing education credits are available.
- Gender Odyssey's Family Program is for families who are working to navigate the day-to-day realities of raising a gender-diverse or transgender child. As one of the only opportunities in the country to find valuable resources, information, and networking opportunities, Gender Odyssey Family provides much needed guidance and connections for families as they seek optimal ways to support their child’s gender exploration.
- Youth Programming - Our youth track (ages 13 - 19) provides dynamic workshops and ample social time.
- Kids Day Camp We welcome children ages 4-12 for all kinds of fun games and activities—including theater, dance, art, music, scavenger hunts, and costume parades—while their parents, guardians, and caregivers attended educational sessions. Kids Camp is FREE to children of registered participants (suggested donation: $25 per child per day).
Gender Odyssey's successful track record of continuous growth and innovative programming has inspired a very high attendee return rate as well as a solid reputation for thought-provoking, quality workshops.
