We were not able to host TransCon in 2020 due to COVID-19, but we remain hopeful that we will be able to host the conference in 2021. The safety of our community is of utmost importance.
AQUA Foundation’s TransCon is a FREE two-day conference for the South Florida transgender and non-binary community, put together BY the trans/non-binary community, with backbone and financial support from Aqua Foundation for Women.
TransCon is a safe space to empower and educate the transgender and non-binary community and their allies. This year, the first day will be called “TransCon U,” and will offer workshops and other activities focused entirely on career/employment building (resume development, interview skills, entrepreneurship, makeup/dress, etc.). The workshops on day two will span all other topics.
FREE lunch is included on both days, and there will also be other great raffles and giveaways throughout the conference!

What TransCon attendees are saying about their experience:
“TransCon changed my life and helped me understand more about transitioning”
“That weekend was the first time I allowed myself to actually be myself. I’ve never felt that weight lifted before.”
“It was nice to go somewhere where I was specifically not misgendered”
“It meant I can be myself around people who were being themselves and we can all be happy without persecution”
“Since my son came out as transgender female, it gave me information and hope that everything can be alright. It made me much more comfortable by meeting good people who care”
