Call for Proposals

We are now accepting workshop proposals for the 2022 edition of its annual Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference (PTWC).

The conference workshop review committee is seeking workshop proposals for the conference’s General Track and its Continuing Education Track (formerly Professional Track).

Dani Murano, PTWC Logistics Coordinator said, “PTWC embraces a wide and intersectional view of what defines trans ‘wellness,’ as a system of overlapping and ever-expansive topics, pertaining to all aspects of trans life. Our priority for 2022’s workshops is to ensure that content is led and/or supported by presenters who are members of the trans and gender-variant community and its many intersections. We also want to ensure that we’re lifting up proposals from intersections of community that have historically been under-represented.”

Trans-led/supported workshop submissions on the following topics for both conference tracks are strongly encouraged:

  • Incarceration, Re-Entry, Decarceration, Prisoner Support
  • Abolition, Transformative Justice, Restorative Justice
  • Community Building
  • Early Transition Support
  • QTBIPOC lead workshops
  • Disability & neurodiversity
  • Trans History & Storytelling
  • Housing instability/Homelessness/Houselessness
  • Trans Youth
  • Show & Tells (femme and masc surgeries)
  • Sex Work & Sex Worker’s rights

The deadline for all submissions is 11:59 p.m. EST March 6, 2022. This video details how to submit a workshop proposal. Any questions about the proposal submittal process should be submitted to the Logistics Coordinator at [email protected].
