TransOhio Transgender & Ally Symposium

This year marks the tenth annual TransOhio Transgender and Ally Symposium! In celebration of the anniversary, the theme of this year’s conference is “Ten Years of Progress, and the Challenges Ahead”

The TransOhio Transgender and Ally Symposium began as a one day event in 2008, attended by approximately 80 people, and has since grown to be a three day conference with over 250 participants, 75+ workshops, and various continuing education credits for qualifying professionals on our Providers’ Day. We are proud of what we have accomplished in the past 10 years, and looking forward to seeing what we can do to help combat legal, medical, familial, and societal barriers moving forward, with your help.

This year’s symposium will be held at the Ohio State University Student Union on April 27-29, 2018Tickets are on sale now!

Sponsor TransOhio

As a 501 C 3 non profit organization, TransOhio endeavors to keep the costs of attendance to the symposium to a minimum and to provide scholarships to those in need as well as to provide free attendance to all youth under the age of 18.

Because of this, our registration fees do no begin to cover the cost of putting on the symposium, and therefore we rely on sponsorship from individuals, businesses, and organizations to the TransOhio Transgender and Ally Symposium possible. Please familiarize yourself with our sponsorship package for more information, and contact us if you have any questions.
