Join Us For the 16th Annual Gender Odyssey Conference!
Gender Odyssey Seattle is an international conference focused on the needs and interests of transgender and gender diverse people, their loved ones, and professionals who serve them. Packed with thought-provoking workshops, professional training opportunities, discussion groups, networking, and social events, this one-of-a-kind annual gathering attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skill sharing and community building at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, USA.
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 Families and Professionals
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 provides much needed guidance and connections for families as they seek optimal ways to support their child’s gender exploration.
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. The 2-day Professional Program may serve as a prelude to Family and Community Program or as a stand-alone event. Continuing education credits are available.
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.
