Founded in 2002, the Translating Identity Conference (TIC) is New England’s largest conference focused on transgender identities, issues, and intersections. We’ve facilitated sessions spanning pre-k to higher education, healthcare, law, and the intersections of gender and race, socioeconomic status, religion, and other social identities. TIC is a one-day event with sessions throughout the day geared towards folks of all levels of education and inclusion - the conference is a safe space for trans folks and allies to come together to learn and build community. We create affinity spaces, partner with trans-owned and trans-friendly businesses to host vendors, and offer ways to connect with the community throughout the weekend.

This conference is open to the national public, but space is limited. Expect registration to open in early fall.
