|Attending the 2014 True Colors Conference|
True Colors Conference on March 17 at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT.
Transgender Lives Conference on April 29 at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, CT.
True Colors is a two-day conference where thousands of LGBT youths and their supporters from throughout the Northeast (and beyond) meet to attend what is essentially a GLBT youth convention. The conference is put together by True Colors, a non-profit organization that works with other social service agencies, schools, organizations, and within communities to ensure that the needs of sexual and gender minority youth are both recognized and competently met.
Transgender Lives is a one-day event is for service providers, medical and legal professionals, the trans and gender non-conforming community, allies and all those interested in the issues facing the trans and gender non-conforming communities. The event is brought about by Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition (CTAC), a coalition and grassroots oriented organization comprised of individuals and organizations dedicated to the advancement and attainment of full human rights for all trans and gender non-conforming people in every aspect of society.
"Makeup Basics for Trans Females" is the title of my presentation and is described, as follows: Putting on your face can be a cosmetic calamity if you don't have a roadmap. This workshop provides guidance and tips for the transgender female on how to successfully navigate the world of cosmetics so that she can start looking like the female she really is.
I have presented at Transgender Lives once before and at True Colors five previous times and and I look forward to doing so again.
