Bridges for Bois: Connecting Queer Bois & Transmen of Color
Using social media, events, workshops, cyphers, parties, speaking engagements and conversations that happen all over the country, bklyn boihood has impacted queer culture and community in innovative and exciting ways. One of our greatest strengths has been through building connections between women-identified bois and transmen.
Often existing in different spheres, join the bois as we examine the strategy of isolation, tools of bridging our beautiful communities and the challenges in presenting ourself as an inclusive body. Consistent with our mission to be a collective that creates visibility and builds community within masculine-presenting bois, lesbians, queers, trans-identified, studs, doms, butches and AGs of color, we have been consistently energized by the prospect of a new type of activism--one that is less politically-charged and centered on the healthy and sustained engagement of "bois".
We are excited to hear your voice, concerns, needs and ideas as we build action steps for bklyn boihood and workshop participants.
About the conference: Now in its eleventh year, PTHC proudly offers a space for transgender people and our allies, families, and providers to come together to re-envision what health means for transgender people. The focus of this unique conference is promoting transgender health and wellness in mind, body, spirit, and community. PTHC recognizes the interconnections among all aspects of our well-being; including health, safety, education, employment, housing, and social support.
Further, PTHC recognizes that accessible and quality healthcare is an integral part of self-determining our bodies and identities in the larger world. As much as possible, PTHC strives to ensure that the conference addresses the diverse needs of all transgender communities: transgender men, transgender women, gender-queer, and gender-variant people, as well as our partners, families, and allies. In addition, in an effort to increase the availability of quality, culturally-competent care for transgender communities, PTHC also provides a workshops for medical, mental health, and social service providers.
We are committed to making the conference as inclusive and accessible as possible. Therefore, the Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference charges no registration fee.
