Gender Spectrum announces its second annual conference, the Gender Spectrum Family Conference, for gender-variant and transgender children, their families, loved ones, and medical and mental health providers at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Saturday through Sunday, August 30-31.

This year marks the second year of programs, family activities, and workshops on the topic of gender variance and children. This conference is one of the only opportunities in the country for families of gender-variant children to gather valuable resources, networking opportunities, and information all in one place.

Workshops at the conference will include presentations by Stephanie Brill, nationally respected gender specialist and author of The Transgender Child: A Handbook for Families and Professionals; Shannon Minter, legal director at the National Center for Lesbian Rights; Beth Reis from Seattle's Safe Schools Coalition; and Michele Angello and Diane Ehrensaft, leading psychotherapists who specialize in work with gender-variant children and their families.

Recreational and social events will include two family brunches, a pizza and pool party for kids, and a day camp filled with various activities.
