2014 Transcending Boundaries – Proposal Deadline Extended

transboundWe are thrilled to announce that the 2014 Transcending Boundaries Conference is now accepting proposals for presentations! The theme this year is Inclusion in Action. TBC strives to be inclusive to people representing all aspects of the gender, sexuality and relationship spectrum and we’re thrilled to be highlighting that this year.

Transcending Boundaries, Inc. was founded in 2001 to provide education, activism, and support for persons whose sexuality, gender, sex, or relationship style do not fit within conventional categories. The organization serves our ever-evolving communities, including bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, intersex, polyamorous, and kinky persons, as well as allies and those who prefer not to use labels.

This year’s conference will include a variety of programming formats ranging from traditional informational lectures to panels to workshops to discussion groups to performances and everything in between. Whether you’re an experienced presenter or interested in leading a group for the first time, we’d love to consider your proposal.

Time slots for presentations range from 50 to 75 minutes. The 2014 Transcending Boundaries Conference will take place April 4-6 of 2014 at the Hartford Sheraton at Bradley Airport.  The deadline for submission is September October 15, 2013, but please don’t wait till the last minute! Presentations will be accepted on a rolling basis, meaning if we see something we like, we’ll put it in the schedule and programming space MAY fill before the deadline!

We are especially interested in presentations that address one (or more) of the following themes:

  • Activism
  • Relationships, Families and Parenting
  • Spirituality and Religion
  • Interactions with Professionals and Health Care Issues
  • Writing/Creative Arts
  • Identity and Community
  • Any presentation which has relevance to multiple sub-populations within our community
You can view our past program offerings at our Chronicle page.

By Be a Sex Educator

It’s my belief that ushering in the next generation of sexuality professionals is of great importance. I believe that this type of information is best shared by current sexuality professionals, organizations, ‘sex nerds’ and anyone who has reliable & legitimate information and that those people should have a platform to share it with others.
