The 7th Annual Virginia Transgender Information and Empowerment Summit (TIES) will take place from Wednesday, October 14 through Saturday, October 17. This year, the conference will be fully digital to ensure the health and safety of our whole Virginia community. Here’s what you need to know about TIES 2020 – www.EqualityVirginia.org/TIES
Who: You’re invited! TIES is designed to meet the interests and needs of transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming youth and adults as well as partners, family members, service providers, and allies. All are welcome.
What: TIES is a free conference offering workshops, trans-affirming mental health and medical consultations, a name and gender marker change clinic, and opportunities to connect and build community!
When: Wednesday, October 14 to Saturday, October 17, 2020
Where: All online. We will share more information about the digital conference tools closer to the event.
Why: In the six years since TIES first began, we’ve found that a shared sense of community is the most important part of the conference. We’ve made new friends, reconnected with old ones, and learned more about ourselves and each other. Now in a digital format, there are new and exciting ways for people from around Virginia to connect, without the need to travel to Richmond.
