Living in a Temporary Pandemic World

As you would expect, all of the scheduled conferences and events for 2020 have been cancelled. As we watch together the path and intensity of the coronavirus known as COVID-19, we will also watch and wait for it to be safe to congregate in larger numbers to celebrate who we are and to celebrate the strides make in our community. Stay safe. Stay well.

Living with Crossdressing: Defining a New Normal

Saturday, March 23rd @ 3:30pm – Fir Conference Room

Somewhere amid the misconceptions, stereotypes, and ignorance is the truth about non-transitioning crossdressing men. But more than that is the strength and care of the women who continue to love and support them. How can they work through the initial shock, fear and stress of knowing this new side of him? What does he need to understand about and assist in the discovery process so that his crossdressing can become a positive part of their ongoing relationship? Join us as we tackle what happens after a crossdressing man reveals himself to or is discovered by his significant other and learn about the changed dynamic between a woman and her crossdressing man.

Presented by Ms. Savannah Hauk and Ms. Judy Swain
