There will also be special evening entertainment, area outings, and pre-conference activities for those who can come early. Most of all, we’ll experience the warmth our gatherings always generate, as we renew old friendships and form new ones.

This year we are partnering with the Capital District LGBT Community Council, which celebrates its fortieth anniversary just two weeks after the conference. They are developing several programs, especially ones concerning trans-youth and Female to Male trans people; and are also organizing many social activities (think picnics, restaurant tours and club crawls…) for our enjoyment.
