In 2007, the Gender Odyssey Family conference began with a small, dedicated group of volunteers and a very big mission: to create the first stand-alone national conference for families of gender diverse and transgender children. With three days of workshops, a day camp for kids, and complete teen program, this annual family conference is one of the few places in the world where these children, teens, with their families can get the information and support they need to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. In 2012, we expanded with the addition of a one-day conference for professionals and students, GO Professional, with sessions covering best practices for therapists, current medical protocols, and legal and educational considerations, including model school policies for gender diverse students. The following year, GO Pro expanded to two days, with an increase in the number of workshops each consecutive year. Beginning in 2017, we will also be presenting a two-day stand-alone professional conference in Los Angeles, in addition to our Seattle conferences, which will include programming focused on serving transgender people of color and POC communities.
