Since 2001, Gender Odyssey has been at the forefront in providing a space for professionals and communities. The Gender Odyssey Conference is one of the few professional events in the country where you can reach hundreds of transgender and gender-diverse youth, their families, care and service providers, advocates, and other professionals.

More and more media attention worldwide is focusing on the stories, needs, and concerns of transgender people. The trans and allied community is a viable and thriving entity more and more recognized both for its diversity and its consumer loyalty to businesses that demonstrate support and inclusivity.

A Gender Odyssey sponsorship, ad, or vending table lets your customers know that you are in the vanguard of human rights and equality for all. Diverse opportunities provide many ways to show your support and access a new market. Whether you are a corporation, business owner, author, doctor, therapist, academician, researcher or non-profit organization, Gender Odyssey offers a wide variety of channels for reaching this audience.

Your cash or in-kind support makes it possible for us to produce this life-changing event each year with a very small staff and otherwise limited resources. In exchange, we can help you be seen as community leaders and allies.

Please consider some of the many available opportunities—or let us design a custom package that fits your specific needs.

Vending at the Conference

Our attendees are looking for businesses and resources relevant to their needs. Last year more than 45 vendors reached people from across the continent at the sold-out Gender Odyssey Seattle vendor fair. You can reach people from across the continent at the often sold out vendor fair.

Advertising with Gender Odyssey

Conference Program Book

Placing an ad in the Gender Odyssey conference program book is a great way to reach a large audience of trans and gender-diverse people, their friends, families, and a wide array of health providers. Attendees carry it with them throughout the conference, peruse it over the weekend, and take it home with them as a keepsake. Hundreds of people will see your ad — people who are specifically looking for resources, services, and organizations that are friendly to their needs.

We offer a variety of formats and prices to fit your budget. We encourage you to get your ad in early for best placement. For ad specifications and prices, see the application below.
