The TRANSforming Gender Symposium
The annual TRANSforming Gender Symposium was founded in 2006. Sponsored by the Women and Gender Studies program and the GLBTQ Resource Center, the symposium began to create a space where the campus and wider community could learn about transgender and intersex identities and issues. Since its inception, the symposium has hosted numerous nationally and internationally known transgender and allied speakers, creating provoking dialogues throughout the community and furthering discussions throughout the year.
Every year the symposium is planned by a committee of staff, faculty, and students. Beginning in 2011 the symposium also opened up a proposal process for presenters interested in participating in the symposium.
The University of Colorado Boulder’s TRANSforming Gender Symposium is celebrating its seventh year! The Symposium hosts national and local transgender and genderqueer activists to address issues surrounding transgender, genderqueer and related identities. Previous presenters and participants have included academics, health professionals, community organizers, performance and visual artists, students, faculty, staff, youth, family members, community members and other interested folks.
The Symposium is free and open to the public. Workshops, films, and keynotes speakers will be held in the Center for Community (2249 Willard Loop Drive).
