We Have Some Exciting News!
Lehigh Valley Transgender Renaissance and the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center are sponsoring two scholarships for people to attend the Keystone transgender conference which takes place March 22-26 of this year.
A Chance to Learn and Connect with Like Minded People
The Keystone Conference is one of the nation’s largest gatherings of transgender people in the nation. Last year almost 700 people – mtf, ftm, gender queer, supporters and allies – attended the conference.
This year the program is being expanded to include even more social and educational programs which will provide the winners of this year’s scholarships even more opportunities to attend seminar and workshops on topics that matter to them. The Conference also provides excellent opportunities for socializing, site-seeing and networking. You will make friendships that will last a lifetime!
This year, the program also includes continuing education credits, provider training, Transmasculine programming and activities, Spouse/Significant Other activities and a much expanded Family & Youth program.
This is an exciting opportunity - especially for those who have not attended before - as it will cover the following costs:
Conference fees (Thursday thru Saturday)
Gala dinner on Saturday
Hotel accommodations (shared room)
Spread the Word!
The scholarship is open to trans women and men as well as their family members along with counselors or therapists. Applicants should be from the Eastern PA/Western NJ (Areas served by LV Renaissance and the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center) but membership or affiliation with Lehigh Valley Renaissance or the Center is NOT a requirement.
This is over a $500 value for each of the recipients of the scholarship!
If you know someone who could benefit from this opportunity please have them download, complete and return the application to the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center no later than February 17, 2017.
